St Stephen’s School is embracing its passion for service and sustainability even further, getting on board as a drop-off point for The Good Sammy’s Containers for Change initiative.
Good Sammy have created their own drive for donations through Containers for Change where people can leave eligible empty containers at the designated drop-off locations. The 10-cent refund will then be paid forward to make a big difference in the lives of people living with disability.
“With your support, we can provide more choices and diverse employment opportunities for people with disability,” Good Sammy Emily Noteboom, Customer Engagement Manager said, adding that the funds raised will also create scholarships and employment opportunities for people with a disability to kickstart their own employment journey or small business.
“When each person gains independence, there is a flow on effect to their families, carers and community – we already have more than 40 people with disability involved with the new container program.”
St Stephen’s School Principal Mrs Donella Beare said there was no hesitation signing on as a drop-off point to help Good Sammy.
“The initiative aligns perfectly with both our heart for service and passion for sustainability,” Mrs Beare said.
“I know there will be lots of people in our own School community and beyond in the local areas willing to drop off their empty containers and knowing that this simple act is making a big difference is so wonderful for all.”
Eligible containers include most glass, plastic, aluminium, steel and paper-based cartons between 150 ml and 3L. Ineligible containers include all plain milk, flavoured milks 1L and above, pure juice drinks, cordial, wine and spirit bottles.
The Good Sammy Containers for Change yellow bins will be at St Stephen’s School’s Carramar and Duncraig campuses, including a drop off point at the Early Learning Centre in Padbury.
