The Surrey can collection campaign to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society is continuing.
Sahil Sidhu, 11, and his brother Armaan, 7, have been collecting bottles and cans as a fundraiser for the society in honour of their late mother, Balwinder Kaur Sidhu, who recently lost her battle with esophageal cancer.
Originally, the boys’ goal was to raise $3,200. But by June 27, which would have been Balwinder’s 32nd birthday, the siblings had already brought in $16,000. (Incorrect information appeared in The Leader on July 2).
The pair is now aiming to collect $32,000 in total, and four Surrey bottle depots have come on board to help.
The community can bring bottles and cans to any of the locations listed below, and specify that the funds go to “Can4Can.” The deposit money will be credited to the “Cans for Cancer” fundraiser created by the Sidhu family.
Participating depots are:
• Cloverdale Bottle Depot – 6-17918 55 Ave., 604-576-6777.(If large quantities, they will sort).
• Panorama Village Return It Bottle Depot – 112-15157 Hwy. 10, 604-579-0208. (Self -sorting).
• Newton Bottle Depot – 13245 72 Ave., 604-596-9266. (Self -sorting).
• Fleetwood Bottle Depot – 15093 Fraser Hwy., 604-585-3544.(Self sorting).
In addition, the Sidhu family is still collecting bottles at their home, at 6638 130 St.
