ARLINGTON, Va., The Aluminum Association's Cans for Causes Program is pleased to assist SARAH Inc. in Guilford, Connecticut with their recycling efforts.
SARAH Inc. has started a recycling program to keep more than 500,000 aluminum cans and bottles out of landfills, while providing jobs for special needs individuals. SARAH's mission is to provide advocacy, services and support for people with intellectual and other disabilities and to promote opportunities for full inclusion in their communities.
"SARAH means the world to me because it has given me a job where I am with people and I am helping out the environment at the same time," says Anthony, member of SARAH Inc.'s recycling crew.
SARAH has taken a "green" approach in the community by recycling five cent bottles and cans.
"We turn every nickel into jobs," says Pat Bourne, Executive Director, SARAH, Inc. "Our teams collect cans and bottles from recycling bins that are strategically placed in communities throughout the Connecticut shoreline. And, 100% of the proceeds from these donated containers directly support our jobs programs."
CANS for CAUSES is a domestic program sponsored by the Aluminum Association to support organizations in their recycle efforts by providing free bin and bin liners. For more information www.aluminum.org. For more information on SARAH Inc. visit www.sarah-inc.org.
