Pop tab pandemonium: Barkley Bridge students seek pop tabs for Ronald McDonald House

Students in Kim Jared’s class at Barkley Bridge Elementary School are asking for donations to benefit children fighting illness. The school has a goal to raise 725 pounds of pop tabs by April 15 – a goal students are nearly halfway to achieving. If reached, the pop tabs will fund a family’s free stay at the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham.

The nonprofit Birmingham RMH cares for up to 73 guest families every night, keeping them together while their children receive medical treatment at nearby hospitals.

According to the RMH website, stay at the Ronald McDonald House provides guests with home-cooked meals, activities, indoor and outdoor play areas, laundry facilities, computers, WiFi and much more so families can concentrate on themselves and their child’s health.

Pop tab donations can be dropped off at the school, located at 2333 Barkley Bridge Road SW. To arrange a pop tab donation box for your place of business, contact Jared at
