RedBlacks Host 2020 Drive-Through Bottle Drive
OTTAWA - The Ottawa REDBLACKS and the OSEG Foundation are proudly teaming up to host the first-ever Drive-Through Bottle Drive on Saturday July 11, starting at 9AM.
With Canada Day and its summer-inspired celebrations just around the corner, the Ottawa REDBLACKS have a goal to engage their fans to help those in need. Fans can bring their empty bottles and cans to TD Place outside of Gate 3 from 9AM to 2PM on July 11 to help raise funds for the OSEG Foundation and the Ottawa Food Bank. Proceeds will support OSEG Foundation's Return2Play COVID-19 Youth Sports Recovery Fund and will help the Ottawa Food Bank to provide emergency food relief to people in need in our city.
OSEG Foundation's Return2Play COVID-19 Youth Sports Recovery Fund was established to support the post pandemic return of youth sports in our community and to assist families and youth sports organizations facing additional barriers to participation as a result of COVID-19.
REDBLACKS players and OSEG Foundation ambassadors Alex Mateas, Nick Arbuckle and Ettore Lattanzio will be on site helping with the sorting and signing autographs to be slipped through the crack of vehicle windows to thank donors for their contributions.
So we invite you to enjoy responsibly this Canada Day Holiday, and consider saving your empties for a great cause.
