Pull For Access
Pull for access is a year-round ongoing program developed for the purpose of assisting persons with disabilities so that they can achieve and/or maintain independent living. By collecting donated pop tabs, PACE, Inc. (persons Assuming Control of their Environment) recycles the tabs and purchases independent living equipment from the acquired financial proceeds. This is a great and trouble-free philanthropic project for any campus program and/or organization. All you need to do is place a tab collection container in your house, RSO cubicle, or student residential facility. Collection canisters can be picked up at the OVP, 2 nd .floor, Room 288 on the south side of the Illini Union.
