Collecting soda tabs for SCS 8th grade (Wed. Dec 10, 2014 12:00 pm)

The 8th grade class at Springfield Christian School is collecting soda tabs as a holocaust project. We want to get a better visual on just a SMALL number of the Jewish lives that were lost. Our class chose a country (Czechoslovakia) which had 277,000 Jewish deaths in it during the times of the Holocaust. So our goal is to collect 277,000 soda/ soup can tabs anytime from now until the end of April. When we are done with these tabs we will donate them to the Ronald McDonald House in Springfield, Illinois. The Ronald McDonald House provides a place for families to live (free of charge) if they have children in the hospital for an extended period of time.
