Halifax Dump and Run 2013 can best be described as a huge success! Not only was over $6000 raised for charity, but we were able to donate all remaining items to Big Brothers Big Sisters, Books Beyond Bars, and Parker Street Food and Furniture Bank. Thousands of items were diverted from the landfill and hundreds of people were able to find something they love for a low price!
The money raised was distributed between the following organizations:
- Adsum for Women & Children
- Alice Housing
- Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) Nova Scotia Chapter
- Common Roots Urban Farm
- Hope for Wildlife Society
- Nova Scotia Nature Trust
- Phoenix Youth Programs
- The North End Community Health Centre
- The Stepping Stone Organization
Saint Mary's University's Environmental Society (SMUES) and Dalhousie's Office of Sustainability would like to thank our sponsors, volunteers, and all those who donated and attended the event for making this year's Dump and Run possible.
