The Parks Department from the Town of Comox has teamed up with YANA to turn cans and bottles into help for families. The staff collect the containers from the bins around town and then one of our hardest working volunteers does all the sorting at the Comox Return-It Centre. Thank you to 8-year-old Chris Parkinson for this great effort and to his mom, Carol-Anne, for being at his side.
