John Howard Society of Simcoe & Muskoka

Bottle Drive

The John Howard Society of Simcoe and Muskoka is running an ongoing bottle drive to raise money to support our community’s most vulnerable. The money will go towards things like ensuring food security, basic shelter, harm reduction, and many other community outreach initiatives.

We are also accepting donations for non perishable food items, new or gently used clothing, socks, coats, sleeping bags, boots etc..

Any container that was sold with alcohol in it can be donated. This includes cans, bottles (glass or plastic), wine bags, tetrapacks and kegs.

To donate, drop by the Barrie or Orillia offices, or call to arrange a pick-up. (For donation pick-ups, please have at least 50 containers or equivalent deposits)
