Students at Malverne’s Davison Avenue Intermediate School spent the month of October collecting bottles and cans for their “Pink Cans 4 Cancer” fundraiser. They brought them from home and even received help from fellow students at schools throughout the district. By month’s end the hallways of Davison were piled with the donations.
But their efforts paid off as the final tally of 8,500 cans and bottles, plus additional donations from the community, resulted in a grand total of $2,217.15 raised.
All funds from the fundraiser will be donated to Garden City-based Cans 4 Cancer, a 501(C)3 non-profit organization that collects cans, bottles and donations to help young women in the community battling breast cancer.
