Save Your Pull Tabs

Pre-K is collecting pull tabs once again to help our local Ronald McDonald House! Please help us by collecting pull tabs from beverage cans, vegetable cans, etc. Collecting pull tabs is an easy and fun way to help the House fund various household expenses such as supplementing their food pantry. RMH provides a “home-away-from-home” to families of seriously ill children and provides programs that give comfort, compassion and care to children and their families. RMH keeps families together and near the medical care their children need.

Help us make this a worthwhile project by sending your pull tabs to the office in a ziplock bag or by dropping them into our large collection box in the gym. At the end of our school year, our pull tabs donation will be delivered to the Ronald McDonald House in New Orleans.

Thanks for helping make this a great service project!
