Pop Tabs - 2019
05/21/2019
Last Thursday the 4th graders delivered this year's pop tab donations to the Ronald McDonald House in Springfield. This year we collected 82,355 tabs! That brings the total of pop tabs CEL has collected since I started the program in 2004 to THREE MILLION, SEVEN HUNDRED FIFTY-TWO THOUSAND, ONE HUNDRED FIFTY! The recycled pop tabs help bring in money to support the Ronald McDonald House and the families they help. It takes about 4,000 recycled pop tabs to make $1. So over the last 15 years we have helped raise about $1000. for this very worthy cause. Thank you to everyone! Please keep collecting!
