The fairest Fourth of July in recent memory had many soaking up the sun and sipping on cold beverages… Wait! Hold on to those cans! A Rockford Ram football player near you wants to take it off your hands. The Rams football team will be holding two pop can drives: July 30 and September 24, from 10:30 until noon. Head Ram Can Man, Ralph Munger, expects good effort from his players on and off the field. Players will be doing their part to raise money for their program by scouring neighborhoods, collecting cans and trying to top last year’s total. As an important member of the team, the Rockford community traditionally does its part to make this endeavor a success. Ways to help this year include: • Contact a Ram football player near you or text your address before date of drive to (616) 799-4904 for pick up. A confirmation text will be sent before pick up. • Ric’s Food Center is also joining the effort this year and is providing a drop-off container near the bottle return July 18-30. • Swing by the Rockford D&W on the day of the drive and bring your cans or jump in and lend a hand sorting.
