Pop a Tab, Help a Family
January 28, 2019
Did you know that collecting and donating tabs from aluminum cans (such as soda and soup cans) helps keep families with sick children close to each other and provides the care and resources they need?
That’s right. And the nursing students at FSC are doing the collecting and donating, to help raise funds for Ronald McDonald House. You can help.
All you have to do is save as many can tabs as possible, and bring them to Gleeson Hall 247, where department secretary Corinna Magno is waiting for your contribution. The tabs are recycled and Ronald McDonald House benefits from the sale of the aluminum.
Says Francine Laterza, assistant professor, nursing department: “When the students and I toured the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, we felt a sense of ‘how can we help, what can we do?’ The house provides a lifeline between families and their children to provide a caring and safe place to stay close to their children who are battling life-threatening diseases. As a nursing department we believe this small gesture of collecting can tabs can make a difference in a child’s life.”
