Pop Tabs for Ronald McDonald House


The big bags are around three pounds and the small bags are about one pound.

   The Ronald McDonald House serves as a “home-away-from-home” for families to stay close to their children who are hospitalized for a long period of time. It costs about $71 a night to run, but only costs $10 for a family to stay there.
   For the past five years Key Club has been collecting pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House. They are currently about three-fourths of the way to their goal, which is 1 million.  
   One pound contains about 1000 pop tabs and is worth 40-56 cents, depending on the price of aluminum. So, Key Club needs your help collecting pop tabs to reach 1 million.
   If we reach 1 million, Ronald McDonald will come to our school. We are the only school in the district that has yet to reach this goal, so please help out by bringing in any pop tabs you have within the next few weeks to Mrs. Scott in room 143. If you bring in pop tabs you will be entered in a drawing for the chance to win an iTunes gift card.
