Just Can It! Kicks off March 26 to Stock Salvation Army Food Pantries

The Salvation Army is partnering with University of Nebraska at Omaha’s Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity for the 15th annual Just Can It! — a food drive and homelessness awareness event to help stock local Salvation Army food pantries. Fraternity members will sleep outdoors in cardboard homes and accept donations of money and non-perishable food Monday, March 26, through Friday, March 30.

Thanks to a partnership with Aksarben Village, several businesses in the area will be collecting food for the cause. Special events are scheduled for each night of the week at Baxter Arena. Just Can It! kicks off with an opening ceremony Monday at noon in the Infiniti Lot of Baxter Arena, just off of West Center Road. Just Can It! ends Friday with an evening concert in Stinson Park.

Items on the wish list include: cereal, canned stews and soups, canned vegetables, boxed mixes, canned meats, tomato products, boxed dinners and boxed/bagged rice products. Donations may be dropped off any time during the week in the Baxter Infiniti Lot.

The Salvation Army and Pi Kappa Alpha thank the 2018 Just Can It! partners: Baxter Arena, Bakers, Aksarben Village, Dino’s, Nebraska Furniture Mart and media sponsor, 96.1 KISS FM.
