The fundraising opportunities offered by the OSSSC allow families the ability to offset some of the costs of swimming by fundraising. There is one fundraising initiative for this season. All families are encouraged to partake or penalty fees will be applied.
Bottle Drive ($75 penalty fee per swimmer per bottle drive)
We will be holding two bottle drives this year, one on May 16th, 2019, 5-7:30pm and the other on July 16th, 2019, 5-7:30pm. Swimmers and families are invited to meet at the Okotoks Bottle Depot, located at 211 Stockton Avenue, where you will be checked in (for attendance purposes) and assigned a part of town to go and collect in.
If you are unable to attend on the evening of the bottle drives, you have two options;
(1) You may collect bottles in your own time and deposit an amount equivalent to $75 to the Okotoks Bottle Depot. If you do this, you will need to note the amount you collected in the OSSSC book (a Spiderman notebook) located at the bottle depot. The deadline for collecting bottles is May 16th, 2019 for the first bottle drive and July 16th, 2019 for the second bottle drive, but you can start anytime.
(2) If you are unable to attend the bottle drive, and you do not bring $75 worth of bottles in to the depot prior to June 1st, you will be charged the $75 penalty fee.
As this is such an important fundraiser for the club, swim practice will be cancelled.
Please note that you also have the opportunity to earn 3 volunteer points per family per bottle drive, if you provide and drive a truck for the duration of the bottle drive.
