Joye Law Firm, has commenced a program of internally recycling its aluminum soft drink cans. In June, Joye Law Firm delivered its first installment of bagged cans to Fire station No. 2, located off of Longpoint Road in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. Many local fire stations in the area collect cans for recycling for the Burned Children’s Fund at the Medical University of South Carolina’s Children’s Hospital. The South Carolina Children’s Hospital’s Burn Unit cares for about 100 inpatient and almost 400 outpatient youths each year.

Proceeds received through this recycling program pay for non-medical and service items necessary to the physical and emotional recovery of pediatric burn patients, including rehabilitation equipment and wound care dressings, and image enhancement programs and items like school re-entry programs, and wigs, make-up and special clothing. The funds from the recycling program are also used for other purposes, including to educate children and families about burn prevention and care, to provide funding for families during treatment such as lodging, food and transportation, and to pay for a special annual camp for burned children called “Camp Can Do.” It is expected that this summer’s camp will be attended by 50 children ranging in age from six (6) to seventeen (17).

How can you help? It’s easy. Take your cans from home or place of employment to your local fire department. Joye Law Firm plans to continue supporting this worthwhile program.
