Much more than soda tabs At Manchester High, Trish Angle's vocation classes are collecting soda tabs for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Richmond. So far, they have collected 39.4 pounds of aluminum tabs. In addition to benefiting families who stay at the Ronald McDonald House while their children are receiving medical treatment, this project allows Manchester High students to practice measurement, explore science (they use magnets to find and discard tabs that are not aluminum) and develop packaging skills. Anyone who would like to support this ongoing project can drop soda tabs at Manchester High and ask that they be delivered to Trish Angle.
