Update: Mrs. Hulme's PreK1 class is still collecting aluminum pull-tabs from beverage cans for Shriners Hospital. Aluminum has recycling value and the tab is the only pure aluminum part of the can. The tabs are sold to a recycling company and the money collected is used to fund transportation for needy children to and from Shriners Hospitals. The can itself can be returned for the deposit (in states that have can and bottle deposit laws) after the tab has been removed. It not only helps the Shriners, but it helps our environment by recycling in a responsible way. Please help us help Shriners Hospitals by collecting pull-tabs in a plastic bag or container and send them into school with your child.
Our computer teacher, Mrs. Hughes' mom, Mrs. Maria DeJesus, volunteers her time at Muckey's Liquor Redemption Center in Lakeville, MA, collecting pull-tabs. She went by there today and hit the jackpot! She collected two and a half bags full of aluminum pull-tabs!
Keep collecting pull-tabs from beverage cans for Shriners Hospital. You're making a difference!!!
