The Ronald McDonald House of Memphis is collecting pop tabs to help raise money for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. This money goes to into St. Jude’s yearly operating budget and allows the hospital to upkeep housing and care for children.

The program started in the summer of 2000 when Memphis recycling plants started to exchange pop tabs for money. The Ronald McDonald House took advantage of this opportunity to help raise money for a good cause.

After asking students how they felt there seemed to be a unanimous agreement that the fundraiser is a good method of raising money for a good cause.

“Of course I would support the cause! It takes something that is bad for us [Soda] and uses it to help children in need,” sophomore Sam Farmer said.

If a student would like to donate pop tabs then see Mrs. Hendrix in room 227. She has a can for the cause sitting beside the door.
