“CANS FOR PETS” RECYCLING INITIATIVE TO PROVIDE FUNDING FOR HUMANE SOCIETY OF SCOTT COUNTY PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Local Events

Tuesday, 25 November 2014 15:19

On Friday November 28, at the Humane Society of Scott County’s Black Friday event, Alcoa Foundation and the Pennsylvania Resources Council will kick off the Cans for Pets program!  Cans for Pets aims to increase aluminum pet food can recycling by donating 5 cents per can collected locally to the Humane Society of Scott County.

Quad City pet lovers can help homeless animals by participating in the Humane Society of Scott County’s Black Friday event, which offers $10 adoption fees for black or mostly black animals, and by getting involved with the Cans for Pets program.  Both programs will help animals like Josie, who sometimes have trouble finding homes due to their coloring.

“We are thrilled to launch Cans for Pets in Davenport,” said Justin Stockdale, PRC’s Western Regional Director.  “The program has been extremely successful in Pittsburgh since its launch in 2012.  Since then we’ve expanded the campaign to include shelters in Indiana, Tennessee, and Texas.  We expect to see the same great success at the Humane Society of Scott County.  The program encourages residents to recycle their aluminum pet food cans, and, in return, Alcoa Foundation generously donates 5 cents per can to a local animal shelter.”

Beginning on November 28 at the Cans for Pets launch and continuing throughout the months ahead, individuals can drop off clean, empty aluminum pet food cans at the Humane Society of Scott County, 2802 West Central Park Avenue, Davenport, during operating hours.  Alcoa Foundation will donate 5 cents per can collected to the organization.

 

“Cans for Pets is an easy way for community members to help the animals here at the shelter, while benefiting the global environment,” said Pamela Arndt, Executive Director for the Humane Society of Scott County.  “These resources will help us find forever homes for all our dogs, cats, and other pets.”

According to an industry survey, the recycling rates for aluminum pet food cans is significantly less than that of aluminum beverage cans: A 20% rate for pet food cans vs. a 65% rate for beverage cans.  The Cans for Pets program aims to increase the recycling of the typically ignored aluminum pet food can.

“There is no limit to how many times aluminum cans may be recycled and it takes about 95% less energy to make a can from recycled aluminum rather than from raw materials.  Our goal is to increase the volume of pet food containers recycled and to raise funds for the important work of our partners at the Humane Society of Scott County,” said Stockdale. “Thanks to Alcoa Foundation, we can all help better our environment, while helping homeless animals.”

Since its launch in November 2012, Cans for Pets has facilitated the recycling of more than 180,000 aluminum pet food cans across the United States.

For information, visit www.prc.org/petcan or call the Humane Society of Scott County at 563-388-6655.

THE PENNSYLVANIA RESOURCES COUNCIL, established in 1939, is the Commonwealth's oldest grassroots non-profit environmental organization.  PRC is recognized as a state and national leader in waste reduction and recycling. www.prc.org 

 

ALCOA FOUNDATION is one of the largest corporate foundations in the U.S. and contributes to nonprofit organizations throughout the world, building innovative partnerships, engaging its people to improve the environment and educating tomorrow's leaders. www.alcoafoundation.com

 

HUMANE SOCIETY OF SCOTT COUNTY provides humane care for all lost, abandoned, and unwanted pets in Scott County, adopts these pets to caring, life-long homes, and educates the community about responsible pet ownership. www.hssc.us

Boys & Girls Clubs to Present Awards to Area Children at Holiday Ball PDF Print E-mail

Monday, 24 November 2014 14:48
IA/IL QUAD-CITIES – The Holiday Ball of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley (BGCMV) will be held Saturday, December 13, and will feature music, dancing, fine dining, and cocktails. But for five extraordinary Quad-Cities children, the highlight of the event will be the Club Member of the Year Awards, honoring them for observing the values of the Boys & Girls Clubs.

The Holiday Ball will be held at the Isle of Capri, 1777 Isle Parkway, Bettendorf, IA. The fun begins at 5:30 p.m. with cocktail receptions for the general public, as well as a VIP and Sponsor reception with Special Guest Chad Pregracke, Founder of Living Lands and Waters and CNN's 2013 Hero of the Year. Guests can bid on a selection of Silent Auction items, and art pieces and ornaments made by BGCMV members will also be for sale.

The dinner and presentation begin at 7 p.m. A steak dinner with a vegetarian option will be served, with gourmet cupcakes for dessert. The emcee will be KWQC news anchor Morgan Ottier. During the presentation, the winners of Club Member of the Year Awards will be announced and introduced. Later, partygoers can dance to the music of the band Ear Candy from 8:30 to 11 p.m.

“We welcome the community to the Holiday Ball,” said Tim Tolliver, Chief Executive Officer of the BGCMV. “The funds raised by this event will help the Clubs to reach more young people, maintain the Clubs that they enjoy, and provide them with services to enhance their lives.”

The awards ceremony will follow the same format as the Oscars, Tolliver noted. “The names of the nominees in each category will be read and the winners will be announced,” He said. “The five winners will be there to accept their awards in categories following the Five Core Values emphasized by the Boys & Girls Clubs. These categories are Character and Leadership Development; The Arts; Sports, Fitness and Recreation; Education and Career Development; and Health and Life Skills.”

Tolliver added that the results of this year’s Literacy Challenge will be shared during the presentation. “Members of the BGCMV are given free books, donated by the community,” he said. “They’ve been keeping track of how many pages they’ve read. Those who have made the greatest progress will be recognized at the Holiday Ball.”

Registration for the Holiday Ball is $100 per person. To register, call (309) 757-5777 or visit the Holiday Ball page on the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley website: www.bgcmv.org/portal/holiday-ball

An Evening to Remember
The Holiday Ball will honor 20 years of serving young people in the Quad-Cities area. “It’s like a big birthday party,” Tolliver said. “We will be holding the Holiday Ball every year from now on, so we want the first one to make a memorable impression.”

As part of the evening’s entertainment, the Metropolitan Youth Program will dazzle guests with their outstanding drumline skills. The Program is headquartered at 712 8th St., Rock Island. “The young people who belong to this group are highly skilled and their performance will be one of the highlights of the evening,” Tolliver said.

The event’s Special Guest, Chad Pregracke, has dedicated his life to cleaning up the Mississippi River and other waterways. His efforts are organized through his nonprofit organization, Living Lands & Waters. For his contributions to his country, Pregracke was named 2013 CNN Hero of the Year.  

“Chad was in his teens when he realized that the Mississippi River needed help,” Tolliver said. “He decided to fix the situation, and at age 23, he founded Living Lands & Waters. He serves as an excellent role model for today’s youth and we are proud to have him as our Special Guest.”

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley, as a chartered member of Boys and Girls Clubs of America, is a tax-exempt organization, duly qualified under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and contributions are tax-deductible in accordance with Federal law.
