Pop can tabs for char­ity

Five Grade 8 stu­dents at Car­bon­ear Academy have been do­ing their part to help oth­ers.

Two years ago, while in Grade 6, Hailee Hoyles, Jas­mine Craw­ford, Hay­ley Power, Han­nah Doyle and Emma Keats came up with a plan to re­cy­cle pop can tabs to save money for a wheel­chair.

The girls put up posters in all cor­ri­dors and class­rooms in the school and en­listed the help of their fam­ily and friends. The pop can tabs were boxed up and stored away in the school un­til the time came for them to do­nate.

That time has fi­nally come. With a col­lec­tion of 257 pounds of pop tabs, Ron­ald McDonald House and Ava’s Jour­ney will re­ceive an equal share of the col­lec­tion ef­fort that these girls have made over their two years at the school.

New boxes will now be started to col­lect pop can tabs for fu­ture do­na­tions.
