T.W. Kelly Middle School collecting Cans for a Cure
DIXFIELD- Beginning today through Friday, students in grades 6, 7, and 8 will be staffing a table at the front entrance of the school and collecting returnables to assist Q97.9 in their goal to raise $25,000 for cancer research in Maine.
Each year the radio station hosts Cans for a Cure, at which time they collect returnable cans and bottles. Their goal this year is to collect 500,000 empty cans and bottles, which is the equivalent of $25,000. The students have also set a goal to collect 6,000 returnables.
Students will be staffing a table at the front entrance of the school and ask for your support in bringing in your returnables. The table will be staffed today and tomorrow from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m., and on Friday from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m.
If you are able to bring empty bottles and cans at this time, students will help bring your donation to the front entrance. Students will then count the returnables, track the number collected and update Q97.9.
If you are unable to drop returnables off at the school, but would still like to donate, you can call the school, and they will pick them up at your home or business. Students are also collecting money that will then be converted to cans.
All proceeds collected will be given to Q97.9 and will be added to their total.
Principal Celena Ranger, stated, “Thank you for helping our school with this community project. We believe that giving back is important, and we want to involve students in this wonderful cause.”
