joe says "Q979 cans"

There are few things Joe loves more than Mainers helping one another out. That's why he's so impressed by the folks at Q97.9, Portland's #1 Hit Music Station, who are hosting another year of Cans for a Cure and making a tremendous effort to fight cancer by raising money for local cancer programs and taking other steps to raise awareness about this important issue. Today, Wednesday October 10th, through Friday the 12th, the Q folks will be at the mall collecting cans. All proceeds will go to the Cancer Community Centerwhich recently merged with the Dempsey Center. The Dempsey Center provides a personalized, holistic and integrated approach to cancer prevention, education and support. All services are provided at no cost to anyone impacted by cancer regardless of their socioeconomic circumstances or where they receive their medical treatment.

In addition to collecting cans, Q97.9 is hosting an online auction to raise funds for the Dempsey Center's important work.
