Max Barlow, The Can Man

The Can Man is the story of Max Barlow. When Max was a child, during the depression, his family was poor. Max never got presents for Christmas. Max read a story in the newspaper 12 years ago that said there were children in his town today who did not get presents on Christmas. Max bought a bike. And started picking up aluminum cans! Max collects cans all year. Right before Christmas, Max sells the cans to the highest bidding surplus dealer for enough money to buy toys for children on Christmas.

The Can Man was produced by students at Florala Middle School, Florala, Alabama in conjunction with The Pacer's Cooperative at The University of Alabama.
