Joining forces with our community partners, Tim Hortons (111 Cross Avenue), Kerr Village BIA, M&M Meat Shops (2525 Prince Michael Drive), Fortinos (Oakville) and Shred-It International, we present our Annual Environmental Awareness Day each year in July. Proceeds from donations and the event's raffle support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Halton. Local vendors exhibit their environmentally-friendly products and services. In addition, children's activities, a community clean up and complimentary BBQ round out the day.
Volunteers from the community clean up the area around the Tim Hortons at 111 Cross Avenue. A team of volunteers led by Collin Woodcock also clean up along the banks of the Sixteen-Mile creek. Confidential documents are also accepted for shredding. M & M Meat Shops, along with Fortinos and Tim Hortons, donate a free BBQ lunch and snacks for the volunteers. Entertainment is provided. The Home Depot children's workshop provided hands-on activities for kids. St. John’s Ambulance is also on hand. Big and little brothers and sisters help with the community clean up.
