Annual 12 Cans ‘Til Christmas Challenge!

Welcome to our Annual 12 Can Challenge! 

This is a simple grassroots effort to help others in our community when they need it the most.
The holidays are most often a time to enjoy and celebrate with friends and family – but for many others it can be a time of loneliness, sadness and stress. This year the need is incredibly high and we hope that we can rely on our community to help us meet the needs of those struggling.
