1,000,000 Pop Tab Challenge
for Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Carolina, Inc.
Catawba Science Center (CSC) is proud to be a part of The Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Carolina, Inc.'s 1,000,000 Pop Tab Challenge. Recycled beverage tabs help support your local Ronald McDonald House Program, a temporary "home-away-from-home" for the families of seriously ill children being treated at nearby hospitals.
Everyone can help us reach our goal by filling a sealable plastic bag with pop tabs and bring it to CSC. The collected tabs will be placed in a larger collection house located in CSC's Aquarium and Millholland Planetarium lobby.
Thank you for helping CSC reach our goal but more importantly thank you for helping The Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Carolina, Inc. provide support to families of sick or injured children in their time of need.
