Unit: Denver Area Council
Location: Lakewood, Colorado
Amount Recycled: 10,000 pounds
Amount Raised: $5,000 (@ $.50/lb.)
Boy Scouts and Explorers (of the Boys Scouts of America Police Explorer Program) worked together to collect a whopping 10,000 pounds of cans. The boys were then recognized in front of a huge crowd at the show preceding a Colorado Rockies baseball game at Mile High Stadium in Denver!
The Boy Scouts used the funds they raised to buy radios, stretchers, bandages and other supplies to be used in police search-and-rescue operations.
