Re: Pop can tabs -Anyone know where to bring them?

    YOU can send them to pop cans for charity as they have been dealing with
    tabs and cans for over 11 years now. This past year they have spent dollars
    in the thousands to help feed and supply groceries to numerous groups who are
    making meals for the hungry and needy especially children. Also they send the
    tabs from pop and beer cans to an Aluminum Recycling company and receive funds
    by weight for the tabs and turn those funds received for the tabs to a group
    that assists in buying wheelchairs for many needy people. Kudos to these
    retired fellows who do this no matter what the weather and see nothing for
    themselves but the joy of helping.
