Lower School Students Donate Tabs to Ronald McDonald House

Under the direction of senior Ashlyn Powers, students in PK3 through 4th grade collected 212 pounds of can tabs for recycling.
One pound is around 1,200 tabs, so the students collected about 254,400 tabs!

According to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama, “Since 2001, communities across Alabama have made a huge impact through tiny pop tabs!... Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama partners with Brother’s Recycling to receive funds based on the going rate per pound of aluminum recycled. These funds are used to support the mission of the House, which can include things like utility bills and supplies that our families need.”

We are so proud of our students for their dedication in helping others.
