With the support of the Hopatcong High School Freshman in Transition Program (FIT), the Hopatcong Borough Schools collected a total of 202 lbs. of pop tabs to benefit the Ronald McDonald House, double the amount collected in 2014-15 when 98.6 lbs. was collected.
One pound of tabs is made up of 966 individual pieces. The combination of this and last year’s collections total to more than 289,800 pieces!
The tabs that are collected are donated to the Ronald McDonald House which then turns them into cashing benefiting the families who are staying at the hospital to pay their bills. The district aspires to reach the goal of one million tabs! To help, collect the pop tabs and bring them to any school in the district throughout this upcoming school year.
Thanks to all at the Hopatcong Schools that donated!
