150,000 Can Salute - Calgary Drop In Centre

The Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre is hosting a special appreciation lunch on Friday, and they are paying for it with aluminum.

The lunch is organized to thank donors and volunteers who have put their time and effort in to The Drop-In & Rehab Centre, as a way to give back to those who have given them so much. As a way to offset costs, 150,000 empty cans have been collected and returned for the deposit, that’s a lot of aluminum.

Homelessness and poverty are issues that affect all Calgarians, especially those living in and around the downtown core. Supporting establishments like the Drop-In & Rehab Centre help to curb and hopefully end the vicious cycle of poverty.
