Highway Pick-up – Fundraiser

May 4 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Greening Alberta’s Highways: Spring Fundraiser for AKBC

May 4, 2024

Join us for our annual high-way pick-up!

Greening Alberta’s Highways:  Spring Fundraiser for AKBC, May 4, 2023

Hey we are doing it again!  Akshobya Buddhist Centre is joining other non-profits and charities in Alberta in helping the environment and raising funds for their organization by cleaning a section of highway.  On Sat May 4th, starting at 10 am, we will be off the cushion and into the ditches again cleaning a 15 km stretch of highway a little southeast of Okotoks.  We’ll have food and drinks before and after at the site. We need a minimum of 30 volunteers – anyone above 9 years old qualifies.  It is a family event and youth are encouraged to help out.  Highways will provide all necessary materials, including safety videos and sponsor us at $100 per km of cleaned highway.

We need to have the names and contact information of all volunteers before the event so we can send you details of the location and the safety videos which are short and sweet –there are 2 at 6 min each.  It is absolutely necessary that you watch these videos before the cleanup day so please sign up as soon as possible so we can send you all the necessary info.

Fundraising is necessary for your Centre to meet its expenses so it is important to join in.  It was rewarding and surprisingly fun to be part of the highway cleanup last year.  You can still give support by making a donation. Our goal is to match the Ministry of Highways payment of $1500 which would make this annual event into a super successful fundraiser.  I hope you will help us achieve our goals –  making our 15 km of highway greener as well as supporting your Centre’s financial needs.

Please contact info@meditateincalgary.com or call 403 454 7595 to sign up.
