Merrillville Intermediate S.T.A.N.D. Hosts 2nd Annual Pop Tab Collection

mis-stand-2016The Merrillville Intermediate School S.T.A.N.D. (Socially Together and Naturally Diverse) Club collected pop tabs for the 2nd year to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

MIS S.T.A.N.D. members are passionate about collecting pop tabs to help support families of other children who are in need. S.T.A.N.D. members filmed video announcements advertising their collection and volunteered part of their lunch time to collect pop tabs.

Pop tabs were collected over a 2 week period. Last year the club collected 18,178 pop tabs and had their sights set on beating that this year. Congratulations to the students from Merrillville Intermediate School for surpassing their amount from last year and for turning in 23,786 pop tabs!

The 5th and 6th grade teams that brought in the most pop tabs were awarded with a spirit wear day just for their students. The S.T.A.N.D club thanks their fellow students and their families for helping to make the pop tab collection such a success.
