Clarksville, TN – The Clarksville Habitat ReStore and Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County Tennessee’s new program, Cans for Homes, have partnered with Bi-County Solid Waste Management and C&L Recycling to collect all aluminum cans at this year’s Rivers and Spires to be held April 18th – 20th.The proceeds from these cans will go to help build a local Clarksville family a home. Habitat and Cans for Homes will be set up at the Green Zone and the Kids Zone during the three day festival. A collection bin will be set up at the Kid’s Zone for the public’s convenience. Cans for Homes will also be participating in the Children’s Parade.
Clarksville residents can continue helping “Cans for Homes” by donating cans, clothes, shoes, purses, linens and even stuffed animals. Cans for Homes coordinators request that all donated items be placed in a plastic shopping bag. The proceeds raised will go toward helping build a local Montgomery County family a home.
This is a permanent project for our Clarksville community as a whole.
Drop-off locations include:
- Clarksville Habitat ReStore located in downtown Clarksville at 408 Madison Street
- C&L Recycling located at 123 Denny Road near Sango Wal-Mart (be sure to let them know it’s for Habitat)
- St. Bethlehem Christian Church at 280 Dunbar Cave Road.
Cans for Homes is very excited about this most recent partnership with Bi-County Solid Waste Management and is looking to partner with many other organizations in the community. You can learn more about Cans for Homes on their Facebook page.
A special thank you is due to the youth from Grace Community Church Remix/Mix and Interact Club Clarksville (Rotary) for volunteering throughout Rivers and Spires to help support Habitat’s Cans for Homes.
