Pop Can Tab Collection

The office will be once again collecting pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald house in Detroit sponsored by one of our Cougars.  We  have a box in the office where you can drop them off throughout the year.
The pop tabs are cashed in by the Home and the money is used to buy any needed supplies to help families have a home away from home while their child or sibling is in Children’s Hospital.
