Letter: Aluminum cans should benefit burned children

Published: November 15, 2012 12:00 AM

As I was unloading paper and cardboard to put in the recently relocated recycling bins on the drive leading up to Glenn Chamberlin Park, I noticed several large bags of aluminum cans piled outside one of the bins.

Apparently the bags were too large to fit through the sliding glass doors on the bins.

It's gratifying to know that all those cans will be recycled, but better yet, had they been placed in the designated container behind the Twinsburg Fire Station, the proceeds generated would have gone to "ACBC," or Aluminum Cans for Burned Children, charity.

This program, conducted through Metro Health Medical Center, enables children with serious burns to attend camp with others in a similar circumstance. Consequently, the children need not be embarrassed by any disfiguring burns as they enjoy a camping experience.

Hopefully, our environmentally responsible citizens will realize that, by taking their aluminum cans to the Twinsburg Fire Department, they are doing two good deeds.
