We have just over $360 in our account at the North Edmonton Bottle Depot from three cadets that are practicing physical distancing. We know at this time bottles are being used and collected in many of our sheds and garages. For those that are practicing physical distancing if you’d keep in mind the depot is still open and bottles can be dropped off and monies can go directly into the 12 AIR CADETS account.
