Nanaimo Youth 20/20 Can Project

Thank you to everyone who supported our Fix-Up Factory!

Together we gave a second life to many broken items, helped reduce waste and learned about recycling.
Thank you to Vancouver Island Regional Library for partnering with us on the event. A special thanks go to our volunteer ‘fixers’ who shared their time and skills. Thank you Brandon Dallamore, Cam Sim, Chol Faust, Deborah, Glenda Ferg, Gloria & Ted, Hazel Miller, Helen & Alana, Ian Gartshore, Kim Bischoff, Mardie Austman and Max.             Thank you to the RDN Solid Waste Services Department for sharing information about recycling and waste diversion in the RDN. Please support these businesses who supported us so generously: Thrifty Foods – Tim Hortons – Home Hardware – Nanaimo News Bulletin – CBC Radio – Coffee News – Mending Mavens – Nanaimo Shoe Repair
