Alberta Wide Christmas Bottle Drive For The Mustard Seed

Get into the spirit of giving with SkipTheDepot's Alberta Wide Christmas Bottle Drive for The Mustard Seed—donate bottles, electronics, and clothing, and join the "12 Days of Giving" to help those in need!

As the holiday season approaches, SkipTheDepot is excited to launch a heartwarming initiative in collaboration with The Mustard Seed—an Alberta wide Christmas bottle drive. This festive endeavour invites customers to contribute not only empty bottles but also electronics and clothing to support The Mustard Seed's mission of eliminating homelessness and reducing poverty across the province.  Get ready for a sleigh ride of goodwill and joy as we dive into this groovy initiative that's all about giving back!

How to Deck the Halls with Donations:

Participating in the Christmas bottle drive is simple and impactful. By donating your bottles, electronics, and clothing to The Mustard Seed, you're contributing directly to programs that provide emergency shelter, meals, clothing, and hygiene items. Use these exclusive promo codes to ensure a whopping 100% of the value of your donations goes straight to The Mustard Seed! These codes are hotter than chestnuts and valid until February 1, 2024:

So, let's crank up the carols and get ready to make a difference in the most festive way possible!

The bottle, electronic, and clothing home pickup were booked using the SkipTheDepot app - no need to go to a bottle depot near you to donate to the Mustard Seed.

12 Days of Giving: Sleighing It for a Cause:

In the spirit of the season, SkipTheDepot is not just stopping at bottles; we're diving headfirst into The Mustard Seed's "12 Days of Giving.” Customers can leave out the following items with their pickups to participate in this charitable initiative:

  • Men’s and Women’s New Underwear
  • Mylar Blankets
  • Thermal Socks
  • Travel-Size Items – Shampoo, Conditioner, Toothpaste/Toothbrush/Floss, Deodorant, Feminine Hygiene Products, Tissues, Lip Balm, Hairbrush/Comb
  • Winter Gear – Winter Jacket, Gloves, Winter Boots, Scarves, Snow Pants, Toques
  • Pants
  • Backpacks (dark colors preferred)
  • $5 - $10 Tim Hortons or McDonalds Gift Cards
  • Hoodies or Sweaters
  • Travel Mug
  • Long Underwear
  • Transit Tickets

Remember to place these items in bags labeled "Mustard Seed - 12 Days of Giving." Act quickly, as these items will be collected until December 26th.

Donations made out to The Mustard Seed with SkipTheDepot go to maintaining impact centres like the downtown location in this picture. Every $5.38 you donate provides a meal and other resources for someone in need.

The Mustard Seed's Holly Jolly Impact:

Now, let's talk turkey... or rather, the impact of your contributions! The Mustard Seed has been a holiday hero for over 35 years, operating in five cities across Alberta and British Columbia. In 2022 alone, The Mustard Seed provided over 550,500 meals to those in need, housed over 454 people, and offered health and wellness services to over 60,000 individuals. Your contribution can help continue these vital programs and services, providing basic needs, health and wellness support, housing, employment assistance, spiritual care, and community engagement through Community Impact Centres. Talk about being on the nice list!

Everything counts! Non-cash donations like donating the proceeds of your bottles, electronics and clothing go a long way in helping those in need.

Make a Difference this Christmas:

Christmas is a special time for everyone, including those facing challenges.
