In November Volunteers of America Men’s Residential Center announced they were collecting returnable cans and bottles. The proceeds are used for a scholarship fund for Portland area high school students. The program has been a success and continues.
According to Julia Peters, Education and Prevention Services Coordinator, VOA has collected over $130 worth of cans and bottles – all of it going to the scholarship fund. VOA is still accepting cans and bottles. Drop them off at 2318 NE MLK Jr. Blvd between Sacramento and Brazee.
