Can Collection at Businesses
The Marcia Pauly Can Collection Program, named after the longtime volunteer who created the program over 15 years ago, began with several donation cans placed in stores near Dakin's Leverett Adoption Center. Now, the program includes over 60 businesses throughout Western Massachusetts and raises over $10,000 in spare change each year.
