Poptops add up for kids of St. Jude

[it’s good to see someone recycling the little things … amongst other things, they’re sharp as a knife, and I often wonder whether animals are hurt on the ones that get left outdoors]

It is hard to imagine a pound of the little metal rings off the top of soda cans, but sophomores at Lausanne Collegiate School began an altruistic project over a year ago and made it a competitive venture with the other Upper School classes.

The students who collect the most poptops win the largest number of pride points (which ultimately allows for a day off for the winning class). Though this in itself is a noble venture, the purpose of this collection is that for each pound of aluminum poptops, a cancer treatment is provided for a child at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through Ronald McDonald House.
