All American Recycling “Save the Cans” Campaign Raises Over $3,400 during Breast Cancer Awareness Month
November 12, 2014, Joliet, IL – All American Recycling, a Joliet-based recycling and waste-management company raised over $3,400 during their 2nd Annual Save the Cans campaign. During the month of October, All American Recycling asked the community to bring aluminum cans to the facility and in turn it would donate 5% of the proceeds to breast cancer research. In total, $3,487 was donated to the Chicagoland Area Affiliate of Susan G Komen, which supports Cook, DuPage, Kane, McHenry and Lake counties.
According to the National Cancer Institute, in 2014, over 235,000 new breast cancer cases will be diagnosed and almost 40,000 people will die from breast cancer related causes.
“The support from the community for this year’s campaign was outstanding,” said Pat Lamorte, Operations Manager for All American Recycling. “To raise almost 70% more than we did in our first year far exceeded our expectations.”
In 2015 the campaign will kick off in early September with a Save the Cans night with the Joliet Slammers. Fans will be able to pay for their tickets with aluminum cans that night. The Slammers box office will accept each aluminum can that a fan brings in lieu of one dollar to purchase their tickets as part of the “Fans Pay With Cans” promotion.
