Pop Tab Collection
The Sunday School would like your help collecting Pop Tabs from aluminum cans to support a program being run by the Ronald McDonald House of New Brunswick and Long Branch. The tabs can be easily removed by twisting them back and forth until they break off. A collection box will be placed in Friendship Hall where you can drop the tabs you save during the week. The collected tabs will be sent to the Ronald McDonald house and then sent to a recycling facility where they are sold by the pound. The money raised will be used to offset the operational expenses of this wonderful charity. Please help us!
