Southern Oregon's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will be holding a can and bottle recycling drive this Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m.

The drive is called "Can-It For Haiti" and members of the SOU athletic teams will be going door-to-door in Ashland asking for spare cans and bottles. Individuals will be stationed at McNeal Pavilion during that time as well for people to drop off cans and bottles.

They will be cashed in and the money raised will go toward SOU women's basketball player Jamie Roupp's Relief for Haiti Fund, which gives money to the God's Littlest Angels orphanage.
