37th annual 11alive holiday can-a-thon

37th Annual Can-a-thon
Our neighbors need your help.
Join us and start collecting now!


Can-A-Thon Supporter

When you opened your fridge or pantry this morning, what did you see? Fruit? Veggies? Snacks? Leftovers from last night’s dinner?

Many of our neighbors don’t have that option, because they’re among the nearly 800,000 people in metro Atlanta and North Georgia who are food insecure—they simply don’t have regular access to fresh, healthy food.

Will you help us change that?
Join 11Alive, Publix, and The Salvation Army of Metro Atlanta on Friday, December 6 for our 37th annual Can-A-Thon. Simply drop off your canned food donations at any of the below locations:

The Woodruff Arts Center
1280 Peachtree Street NE
Atlanta, GA 30309
(Fulton County)
Cumberland Mall
Atlanta, GA 30339
(Cobb County)
Infinite Energy Center
6400 Sugarloaf Pkwy
Duluth, GA 30097
(Gwinnett County)
Publix at Cascade Crossing Shopping Center
3695 Cascade Road, SW
Atlanta, GA 30331
(Fulton County)
Coosa Valley Fairgrounds
1400 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd
Rome, GA 30161 (Floyd Co.)

Those donations will stock The Salvation Army’s 13 metro Atlanta-area food pantries.

Frequently Asked Canathon Questions

  • Can I be on TV?
    While we would love to feature all persons and personalities who are donating canned goods, we cannot promise or guarantee screen time to any person, group, school, or company. In the event of “breaking news”, 11Alive will prioritize coverage of the most pressing local or national news.
  • Can my group perform LIVE?
    We love performances by Can-A-Thon supporters who are bringing canned goods! We are unable to promise or guarantee screen time to any choir, band, or entertainer.
  • Do you supply boxes?
    Unfortunately we do not supply boxes for your canned good collections.
  • Do you have graphics I can use for social media, newsletters, etc.? Yes! Please e-mail Joelle.miller@uss.salvationarmy.org for Can-A-Thon graphics.
  • What are acceptable donations?
    Non-perishable food items, canned goods (vegetables, soups, meats, sauces, fruits), dry goods (pasta, beans, oatmeal, grits, crackers, cereal), baby formula, and baby food.
  • Will you pick up my Can-A-Thon donation?
    No; we are not able to pick up the donations. Plus, it’s so much more fun to drop-off your collections at one of our drop-off sites on Can-A-Thon day!
  • Can I drop my donation off on the way to work?
    Yes! This is the fastest, and easiest way to give. Once you arrive at your drop-off location, our team of volunteers will unload the bags/boxes from your car. You don’t even have to turn the car off!
