coffeeFrom time to time during the Spring and Summer, you might see something strange on Queen Street in downtown Kitchener.

The table and patio umbrella mean we're offering freshly brewed coffee, fruit juice, and treats - free of charge!

You can grab your coffee break "to go" or stay and chat I while.

Think there must be a "catch"?  Stop by and see for yourself!

These items do a lot of damage to the environment when they break down in landfills.  When recycled safely by trained professionals, however, their components are useful and valuable.

Items may be dropped off:

Saturday, 8 June 2013
10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

in the church parking lot
(entrance off Church Street)

Cash4Cans ‘n Stuff also collects other recyclables, including any metal-containing items, batteries, appliances, beer/wine/liquor containers—so bring whatever you’ve got lying around.

"Birdies for Charity" supporting Community Cupboard

Posted on Monday, May 13, 2013 at 11:05 AM

Each summer a famous golf tournament comes to Waterloo, and this year the Community Cupboard will benefit.CC logo

How?  “Birdies for Charity” is a program run in connection with the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic to support local charities.  This year our Community Cupboard is one of them.  Manulife Financial provides the rewards (read on!) and a simple way for donors to give—and the Community Cupboard receives 100% of donations collected for it.  All donations will receive a tax receipt.

How Can I Participate?

  • Make a pledge.  Donors can pledge $0.02 or more “per birdie” to the Community Cupboard.  (A birdie is when the golfer makes a hole with one stroke fewer than “par” for that hole.)  When the tournament is over, all the birdies made by all the golfers will be added up.  Last year there were about 1,400 birdies.  So, for example, a pledge of $0.02 per birdie would mean a donation of around $28.

Want a free pass to a day at the tournament?  Be one of the first 25 people to pledge at least $0.07 per birdie to the Community Cupboard, and we’ll offer you one!  Thanks, Manulife!  The tournament runs July 10-14, 2013 at the Grey Silo Golf Course in Waterloo.
