“CAN” We Make a Difference?

Stomping Cans to Stomp Out Disease

The Children of Larisoro Samburu Village in Kenya

We are so thankful that so many people in our local communities in Skagit and Snohomish County have had the opportunity to drop off or collect aluminum cans to donate to the work that these young people are doing to meet the basic needs of orphaned and vulnerable children in central Africa.

Since July 2013, these young people, along with the many adults that help collect these cans, have purchased medicine, mosquito nets, beds, school supplies, built toilets and helped get clean water and set up farming projects to supply food for these children. The money from the recycled cans also provides $100/month for the Comfort Africa ministry that helps meet the needs of vulnerable children that are being cared for by families that have ‘adopted’ them into their own families. They are also sending $30/month to help pay the teachers at the primary school built for the Wambuti pygmy tribe that live on Idjwe Island in the middle of Lake Kivu in the eastern DRCongo.

We have several “recovery houses” in the area that have set up Harvest Kids collection stations (garbage cans) to collect aluminum cans for the ministry.


Deposit stations are located at:

Garden of Eden family ministry

 14799 Avon Allen Rd, Mt Vernon, WA

and at

Sheila Strock’s home
203 Thompson Ln, Sedro Woolley, WA
and at
Blake & Kylee Walker’s home
9732 163rd Ave NE, Granite Falls, WA


If you would  like to set up a collection station for your neighborhood or at a care center, church building, school or place of business, please call 360-421-8811 or 360-421-8812.

“This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us

and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.”

(1 John 4:10-11)
