Tab Time

NJHS has kicked of their annual tab collection for the Ronald McDonald House. Many teachers and/or classes have helped collect in previous years, and we would love your help this year as well. Please save the tabs from anything canned (beverages, soda, juices, soups, etc). We will be collecting until May.

For those of you who do not know about the tab collection, the Ronald McDonald House recycles the tabs and uses the money to buy supplies for the house. It is a wonderful community service project because the house provides free lodging for families while children are receiving long term (and often very serious) medical treatment.
