The American Cancer Society (ACS) benefits from a can collection located in Ellsworth’s midway district. Area residents pitch in by donating their aluminum cans to the fight against cancer. A check presentation this week showed the latest amount from the collection to be realized by the ACS is $1,580. Appreciation is extended to the entire Ellsworth community for supporting this effort.
