Canister solicitation, referred to as “canning” by the students, is a valued THON tradition that can greatly support your fundraising efforts when done safely and properly. Canister solicitation can only take place during the designated fundraising weekends.  Be sure to look at the calendar to see which weekends are the designated canister solicitation weekends.
