Ronald McDonald Pop-top drive

index

Recently, Mrs. Reilley (a 5th grade teacher) and her daughter’s Girl Scout troop went to the Ronald McDonald house near CDH to cook dinner for the families staying there. During the visit, they went on a tour and the volunteer guide talked about how money is raised to fund the house. One of those ways is the collection of pop-top tabs.

Her daughter’s Girl Scout troop would like to begin collecting pop-top tabs for this charity, and she’s asking for KBK’s help. If you could collect tabs, it would be greatly appreciated! Tabs can be placed in a Ziploc bag and sent to school with your child. We will also be collecting them through the summer and they can be turned in to Mrs. Reilley at the start of next school year.
