Bottle Drive for the Children’s Program!

This article was posted on Wednesday, April 30th, 2014 at 2:45 pm and is filed under 2014 05 May, Art Gallery.

As many people in the community are aware, we at the Dawson Creek Art Gallery strives to provide art classes to children in the area for a reasonable cost. We run two separate programs each year: the winter art program and the summer school of the arts.

The winter program provides an after school art class for ages 6 and up, and each sessions is 90 minutes of a variety of arts, depending on the day of the week.

The summer school of the arts services three age groups (4-7, 8-12, and 13 & up) and provide programs each week that run at a set time, Monday through Friday.

How can you help us to continue to provide this experience for young children?

Pop cans. And bottles.

This year our Art Gallery is hoping to start the first of what will hopefully become an annual fundraiser for the summer school of the arts – a bottle drive!

We are not asking for cash donations, but instead, for your recyclables! We’ll take car of the de-lidding and sorting, just drop them off with us any time from now through to June 15th. Every bottle helps buy art supplies for the children’s art studio, and any donation – one can or twenty bags – is appreciated.

Just bring them by the art gallery and leave them with us (Daneka primarily) – we greatly appreciate any that you have to donate!

If you’re curious about what other items can be donated, here is a list of some of the common items we would appreciate that you might be able to help us with:
- Pop Can Tabs
- Bottle Lids
- Margarine, Yogurt, Ice Cream etc containers and lids
- Toilet Paper Empty Rolls
- Empty Wine Bottles
- Scraps of Fabric
- Old Tee-Shirts (Medium, Large, XL – no profanity please)
- Any crafting supplies (feathers, beads – you name it!)
Or you can e-mail the Education Coordinator at

We thank you for reading and donating to our children’s program this year!
