April 20, 2007, Newsletter Issue #229: Aluminum Can Tabs for Donation

Tip of the Week

These are used for the Shriner´s Hospital, which is a hospital for burn patients. After the tabs are collected, the tabs are put through a special magnet to remove impurities, and then each batch is visually checked by volunteers. The tabs are barreled up, weighed and redeemed for cash. The money is used by the Shriner's for items not included in their burn center´s budget, such as bookcases, wheelchairs and high chairs. Please send these to Amvet´s Ladies Auxiliary, 5 South Street, Hudson, MA 01749 and mention the name Deirdre, so that they know where they came from.
