Want to have less recycling in your room and help out a great cause? Toss your empty cans into this box outside room 226. The cans get turned in for their salvage value and the funds go to support cancer research. During specific cancer awareness months, all the proceeds will go to a specific charity that supports that cancer type. If interested in this project, sign up to join Cans For The Cure on PioneerLink.
