The organization that reduces, reuses and recycles is rejuvenating the community by donating $25,000 to the Red Roof Retreat to go towards their programming for children and young adults with special needs in the Niagara region.
Niagara Recycling presented the second cheque for $25,000 to the Red Roof Retreat at their St. Catharines facility today out of four cheques, which in four years will total $100,000.
The funding will go towards the RRR’s Adult Day Program. The Adult Day Program at Red Roof Retreat offers physical and personal care, social and emotional support and recreational and leisure activities, both at their St. Catharines Community Centre and eleven-acre Ranch in Niagara- on-the-Lake and within the community, for young adults with special needs. The Adult Day Program takes clients with special needs out of their homes and gives them an opportunity to be involved in their communities in a safe and enjoyable way.
Since 1996 Niagara Recycling has recycled $2 million back into the community through groups that support children and young adults with disabilities, as an honour to the man who founded the recycling business back in 1974 who had a son with a disability.
