Turn Your Empties into Community Support!
Several of our community programs and services benefit from additional funding generated by the bottle depots Cosmos operates.
For over 40 years, Cosmos Group of Companies has been serving the residents of Central Alberta by providing many kinds of support for citizens with disabilities. In a new community initiative, Cosmos Bottle Depots Ltd. is now making an effort to reach out and serve a greater number of residents of Red Deer, Blackfalds and area in a variety of ways.
The “Turn Your Empties into Community Support” project involves large donation bins being placed around Red Deer and surrounding area to collect refundable beverage containers to support local initiative.
100% of the proceeds collected from these bins will be directed back into non-profit organizations in our own community. Cosmos is excited to make recycling more accessible, less of a chore, and to help people in need all at the same time.
The following community based non-profit organizations have been supported through this initiative over the years:
- United Way of Central Alberta
- Red Deer Food Bank
- Learning Disability Red Deer
- Shalom Counselling
- Volunteer Center of Central Alberta
- Urban Bull Dog Against Kids Abuse
- Central Alberta Humane Society
- The Mustard Seed Society
- Central Alberta Christmas Bureau
