Bottle deposit funds will benefit camp

With the snow outside most people aren’t thinking about camp, but Ed Fehr is.

He continues to pick up bottles from Summerland residents and businesses to assist kids who cannot afford to go to summer camp.

The word has spread, and the list of people that are now calling Ed has grown. They include Phil from Northern Fireplace, Doreen, Shell employees, Ellen, Vern, and others who do not wish to be named.

The recycled bottles are turned into cash and then the funds are donated to a church group.  

Each summer, the Kamloops Evangelical Free Church hosts a summer camp in Clearwater.

This year will be the same, with plans to host camp in August.
