eTown is an independent radio program that blends performances by top musicians and conversations about health and welfare in communities from coast to coast. Indianapolis’ own Mary Stumpp won eTown’s Echievement Award for the Can Lady Project. After her neighbor told her that some of his classmates couldn’t afford to attend a field trip, Mary began collecting cans in schools and around the Indianapolis community. She turns them in for cash at local scrap yards in order to fund elementary and middle school students’ field trip fees. Since the Can Lady Project began, Mary has diverted 25,000 pounds of aluminum from landfills and has raised over $14,000 for Indianapolis Public Schools. Congratulations to Mary and the Can Lady Project!
