Ongoing 4-H Project: Pop Tab Collection for Ronald McDonald House
4-H’ers are continuing their tradition of collecting and selling pop tabs to benefit the Ronald McDonald Houses of Georgia. The project began in 2002 when 7th and 8th grade 4-H’ers presented the idea to 4-H administration. Since that date, 4-H’ers have raised money to support Ronald McDonald Houses across the state by selling pop tabs that have been collected by Georgia 4-H'ers . Remember that this is an ongoing project and we will be turning in pop tabs again in November 2015...so keep collecting!
