Bratt Elementary Collects 65 Pounds Of Pop Tabs For Ronald McDonald House

June 11, 2019

The students at Bratt Elementary School collected 65 pounds of pop tabs -those little pull tabs off the tops of aluminum drink cans — to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Northwest Florida.

The school collected 65 pounds, or about 82,355 tabs.

The money from recycling the tabs are used by the Ronald McDonald House to help pay their water bill.

    @negative I bet most of those tabs came of cans of cold beer.

    “Pop” tabs or “Coke” tabs? Just kidding. Glad the kids are doing it for a good cause.

    Good way to support the RMH where relatives can stay while their loved one is in the hospital with diabetes from drinking all those sodas.
