Deltans came together in early April to regain their space and while donating to the Delta Secondary dry grad class of 2021.
With the cancellation of the annual spring clean-up event this year, 505-Junk wanted to provide an easy option for people to drop off their small to medium sized items.
In total, 505-Junk had a stretch goal to fundraise $4,000 for the dry grads.
The final tally was $4,001.80 with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to the fundraising committee.
505-Junk hauled six full trucks and more than 17,000 pounds of material while focusing on environmentally-friendly recycling and disposal with their local suppliers.
“It was a pretty incredible turnout,” said Barry Hartman, co-founder and CEO of 505-Junk
“We want to thank everyone who dropped items off and donated, the volunteers for safely coordinating people on site, and our team members at 505-Junk for helping load the trucks and drop them off at the appropriate recycling depots. We hope you enjoy your newfound space.”
Christine Murphy, who was in charge of the event for the DSS fundraising committee also offered her thanks to 505-Junk and the community at-large.
“Thank you, thank you, thank you to Barry, Alex and Neal from 505-Junk. Such friendly, professional and generous young guys from an amazing local company who donated their time and their trucks – six of them,” she said. “It was a wonderful fundraiser for the Delta Secondary School grads of 2021 that exceeded our expectations! And thank you to everyone who brought us their junk and their donations and to the volunteers who made it such a success! We couldn’t have done it without you!”
