The Scouts CAN Program
The W. D. Boyce Council, Boy Scouts of America and Habitat for Humanity teamed up to collect 3.5 million aluminum cans. The money raised - over $50,000 - has built one full house for Habitat for Humanity while supplying several other homes with funds to complete their builds.
In the process, we have established a sustainable community recycling program that will continue to raise funds for future Habitat for Humanity homes.
