Don’t want to risk the Bottle Depot?
Like many of us, you may have bottles and can piling up but you don’t want to go to the bottle depot. Perhaps you never really did! Now, the CNA partnered with Skip-the-Depot and we need your bottles!
Use this link to download the Skip-the-Depot app and donate the proceeds to the CNA supporting our efforts in neuropathy awareness and education.
Skip-the depot will pick them up for you.
Be sure to select Calgary Neuropathy Association as your designated charity.
This is a question we get asked almost every day at the Calgary Neuropathy Association.
We want you to know that the answer is “Yes!”
We want to help you learn to manage your neuropathy and chronic pain.
The Calgary Neuropathy Association is an educational support group and a place to connect with those living with neuropathy, neuropathic pain and their caregivers. We have resources available on our website for people from all around the world, not just Calgarians — all are welcome.
We provide opportunities to learn about the condition so you can take an active role in its management.
Meet us in person: come, talk, and ask questions. Be listened to.
