Students at Colwood’s David Cameron elementary want West Shore residents to donate scrap metal in order to raise money for extra curricular activities.

“The money we raise through this scrap metal drive goes directly to students so that they can enjoy music, go on field trips, play sports and have up-to-date computers,” said Fern Smythe, president of the Parents Advisory Council.

The drive runs through the month of April and residents can drop off metal to an on-site collection bin at the school on April 20 and April 27. Smythe says the school can also arrange for pick up.

Residents can also bring metal directly to Schnizter Steel, 307 David St., and donate it to the schools account (#Davi80).

Schnitzer Steel is giving the school premium pricing for all scrap metal through the month. Acceptable items include cars, lawn mowers, bed frames and more. Smythe says the fundraiser teaches kids the power of recycling and helps to clean up West Shore as a whole.
