Collecting pop tabs for a good cause


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Students at Farrington Grove Elementary School in Terre Haute are collecting for a good cause.

They are taking in pop tabs to benefit an Ohio kid who recently had a heart transplant. The tabs will be sold to a local scrap company then the money will be given to the young heart patient.

A teacher at Farrington Grove said the program has been a major success.

“We haven’t quite reached a million tabs yet but we have recently heard of a little boy that’s in need of some extra funds for their parents to stay with them in Ohio,” said Angela Foster, 5th grade teacher. “So we decided as a school those tabs that we have we decided to donate to them so that we could help a specific cause.”

In the past, Farrington Grove has collected tabs for the Ronald McDonald House and Riley’s Children Hospital. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
