Save Those Pop Top Tabs

Our Sunday School students have begun a new mission! They are collecting aluminum can pop-tops for the Ronald McDonald House. Throughout the year you have access to beverage cans and you can recycle those tabs. Before you recycle the cans, pull off the tabs and save them. Bring them to church where you can deposit them into our Collection containers. Thank you for supporting our Sunday School students and Ronald McDonald Hose.
