From March 25 through March 31, 2017, River Metals Recycling (RMR) – – Louisville’s largest scrap metal recycler – – is raising funds for donations to The Healing Place. Recyclers can take their aluminum cans or can tabs to River Metals Recycling’s 2045 River Road location and designate that the value go to The Healing Place. RMR will transfer that amount and also contribute an extra 50 cents for each dollar donated.
The Healing Place offers programs for both men and women struggling with addiction. Now a nationally-recognized recovery program for men and women, The Healing Place was founded in 1989 as a homeless shelter and medical clinic for men. They provide food, clothing, and shelter at no cost to more than 600 clients daily seeking help for their addictions.
Tim Denham, who spearheaded the ‘Cans for a Cause’ project for RMR, said the company’s culture and philosophy revolves around being good neighbors in and giving back to the communities in which RMR does business. “At River Metals Recycling, it is our way of “paying it forward” for an organization that does so much for community members. We are honored to partner with The Healing Place to raise money and help support their cause.”
