Environmental Awareness Day
A free barbecue by M&M Meats was provided, as well as donuts and beverages by Tim Hortons, live entertainment, give-aways, kids’ activities, and interactive exhibits. Beginning at noon, attendees were invited to join forces with the Environmental Day clean-up crew to tidy the streets around the Oakville GO station. A drive-thru electronic recycling depot was available on site, making it easy to safely dispose of electronic waste.
Oakville Chamber of Commerce has partnered with Tim Horton’s, ConnectUs, and Big Brothers Big Sisters Halton to make this day possible. M&M Meat Shops, Home Depot Children’s Workshop, and Peel Local Tim Horton franchisees have teamed up again this year for the Tim Hortons Earn-a-Bike Program which helps kids experience the value of community spirit through volunteering in their communities. Kids who have completed the program will be presented with a brand new bike. All proceeds from the day’s event will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters Halton.
