"Just Can It' Campaign Starts March 31st

University of Nebraska at Omaha fraternity members will help stock the Salvation Army's two food pantries in Nebraska's largest city.

The food drive and homelessness awareness campaign called "Just Can It" begins March 31 and runs through April 4. Omaha Fire Department neighborhood stations and Fareway Food Stores will accept donations of non-perishable food during the drive.

Members of UNO's Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity will sleep outdoors at Crossroads Mall in cardboard homes and accept donations of money and non-perishable food.

In 2013, the Salvation Army filled nearly 8,500 food pantry orders.

Last year, the Just Can It drive collected more than 37,700 food items. This year, the goal is to collect 45,000 food items.
