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.
Whle planning your Canning Weekend, please be sure to read over all Canning documents. This includes the Canning Registration How-To Guide, the THON 2014 Safe and Effective Canning Presentation, and the Canning Weekend Checklist and Example Canning Weekend Calling Script. These documents will help you plan a succesful and safe weekend. They can be found under the Documents Section.
