The bottle drive is one of several fundraisers the soccer team has done to pay for the trip to Hawaii. They will depart on March 21 and return on March 30. The team has also run the concession at a youth soccer tournament, put on a garage sale and barbecue, sold Purdy’s chocolate bars and run a soccer skills and drills clinic to help pay for the trip.

For more information or to arrange pickup of bottles, call Kim at 250-574-3866.
