Image of a house with a heart coming out of the chimney and Ronald McDonald holding a child's hand.Please collect and save tabs from aluminum beverage or food cans and bring them into Rockfish. We are working hard to fill our collection container this year. When full, it is worth a $13,000 donation to the Ronald McDonald House. The Ronald McDonald House is a program that offers rooms and housing to families of seriously ill children for $10 a day instead of $80+ a day while their children are being treated in hospitals. Their pop-tab recycling program is just one way to generate funds to help cover expenses to help families. The Ronald McDonald House has served members of the Rockfish and Hope Mills communities. Please help us to help them by saving all of your aluminum tabs and bringing them into the school.
