Soda Can Pop-Tops; Worth Their Weight in Love

| 5 Comments

Poptop.jpegThe girl scouts of the North Edison Metuchen Service Unit collect aluminum pop-tops from beverage cans as a fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House.  Gathering them from home and family parties, they proudly bring them to each troop meeting.  Scout Marisa Redding takes responsibility for collecting and storing the tops collected by the entire unit and taking them to Ronald McDonald House in New Brunswick.

 

Last year, the service unit collected 240 pound of pop tops.  Considering the weight of an entire empty soda can is only .5 ounces, that's a whole lot of pop tops.

Little Bari Quinn of Daisy Troop 80763 collected and donated 25 pounds of pop tops herself!   She asked her dad to please set-up collection bins near the vending machines at work and the result was a tote that weighed almost as much as her.  

 

Thanks for reminding us just how mighty little can be!
