Sims Metal Management is now collecting aluminum cans to benefit this year’s
American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Duneland. Cans may be taken in
through July 12, to Sims, at 156 E. US Hwy. 20, Chesterton.
Sims will pay the prevailing rate for aluminum scrap and will generously
match 5 cents per pound as their contribution. When cans are dropped off by
teams or participants of this year’s Relay, Sims will write a check payable

Relay’s bank night.

have a chance to celebrate the victory of local cancer survivors during the
Survivors Lap, remember those who have lost their battle to the disease

action against the disease.
