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.
