On March 22, 2017, Zero Waste Sooke presented a grant request to the District of Sooke in the sum of $750 for assistance with the following:
- Roadside Clean-Up on Earth Day, Saturday, April 22
- Repair Cafes at the Sooke Community Hall (May 27, October 21)
- Visit by Victoria Compost Education Centre to the Sooke Country Market (July 8)
Each of our events was offered as a public service either free of charge or, in the case of successful fixes at the Repair Cafes, small donation.
Sincere thanks to the District of Sooke for this support, which is essential to a volunteer-run non-profit operating with a small reserve budget and no full-time staff. We trust that our work has helped the District meet its public education and outreach targets related to climate change.
