Middle School News: Bring your aluminum can tabs to support Ronald McDonald House

posted Sep 23, 2014, 2:50 PM by TC Administrator
The Tri-Center Elementary Student Council will be assisting the Tri-Center Middle School with collecting aluminum pop tabs during the 2014-15 school year.  Students are encouraged to collect and bring “clean” pop tabs to the school offices.  Student volunteers will then count them and turn them into the Ronald McDonald House.  The Ronald McDonald House recycles the tabs and uses the proceeds to assist families who have a child receiving treatment at our local health care facilities.  Why pop tabs and not the entire can?  Because pop tabs are smaller and easier to store.  The tabs are also paint free and pure aluminum, which increases their value and profit when recycled.  So pull your tabs for the Ronald McDonald House, but be sure to recycle the cans.  Track our progress on the Tri-Center Website at:
