Ontario Canada Beer Store Bottle Drive Battles Blood Cancers

This is a Fund Raiser by UFCW Local 12R24. They have raise millions for Leukemia Research. Union members do more fund raising and supporting of charities than any other group. We need to start to tell the world who supports the people that governments have neglected. Great Job Rob Edwards and Local 12r24 !!

On the weekend of May 26th and 27th, Beer Store locations across Ontario invited their customers to donate all or a portion of their empty bottle returns to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada. The Returns for Leukemia Bottle Drive is held each May by United Food & Commercial Workers Local (UFCW) 12R24 in partnership with The Beer Store. Customers at The Beer Store on The Queensway, just west of Royal York Rd., were more than happy to donate their empties or cash and the many volunteers on hand were even happier to receive the donations. Since 2006, Returns for Leukemia has raised almost $4,500,000, making it the single largest fundraiser in Canada for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.
