November 21, 2019 - 4-H Club Gives Back

4-H club collects pop tabsHappy Valley 4-H club coordinated a countywide effort to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House by collecting pop tabs. Beginning in the spring of 2019, the club began a drive for all Brown County 4-H clubs to collect the small tabs from aluminum cans. Clubs brought their pop tabs to the Brown County STEM Innovation Center for a weigh-in on Saturday, October 5th.

Brown County 4-H clubs and groups together raised nearly 600 pounds of aluminum tabs by collecting at various events and locations throughout Brown County. Through additional partner-ships and charitable contributions from local organizations, Hap-py Valley 4-H club will present a donation of more than 700,000 aluminum tabs as well as additional cash donations to the Ronald McDonald House of Eastern Wisconsin. They’re not stop-ping there.
“Our vision is to be able to continue the program each year and hopefully grow and expand to include everyone, whether you collect handful of pop tabs or hundreds of pounds,” said club leader Nicki Van Deurzen.
