CAN DO - Donate your 5-Cent Deposit Cans & Bottles

Another great service project is organizing a CAN DO drive. We are fortunate to live in Iowa where we get 5 cents back for most cans and bottles. It's as easy as collecting these from home, school, and/or church and donating them to the CAN DO project run by the Iowa City A.M. Rotary.

Download the CAN DO flyer for more information. These cans really can make a difference. In 2012 the Iowa City A.M. Rotary donated $10,000 through Community Grants to not-for-profits in Johnson County, including The Crisis Center.
