Containers for Change
We are very excited to be apart of the West Australian government’s Containers for Change Initiative. By being involved in Bridge Builders Containers for Change program you can turn your containers into donations to help put food on the table for those experiencing hunger and food insecurity in our community.
Our goal is to collect 120,000 recyclable containers in 365 days which will go towards the Community Food Services Centre, that helps families and individuals in our community who are doing it tough.
120,000 Containers in 12 months is equal to $12,000!
Thats as simple as 50 containers a month
That's just 12 containers a week.
We need 200 Supporters to make our goal a reality.
