We are again collecting pull tabs for Indian Summer Camp, a special camp for kids who have been diagnosed with cancer. The camp is run totally on donations with the recycling of pull tabs being their main fundraiser. Since cancer can be quite expensive, there is no charge for the kids to attend the week-long camp. No child has ever been turned away. There are doctors and nurses at the camp so they can continue their chemo, if necessary. You may not have a lot of pull tabs but when added together, they can make a lot.
This is the eighth year our school has collected and the past few years we have collected around 100 pounds each year! You may send them in throughout the year or wait until the final collection in the spring to bring them. Your student may give them to their homeroom teacher or put them in my mailbox. The homeroom that collects the most will have a party with Dawne Gee, of WAVE3 News. She, also, works with the camp and comes each spring to talk to the class and answer questions. You can read about the camp and see pictures by going to www.kidscanceralliance.org/camp-programs.html and looking under the tab, kids and parents, then photo gallery.
Remember, with each pull tab you save, you are helping a child with cancer have a week of fun, just being a kid!
Thanks for your help!
