Assist DBFE students and teachers in collecting tabs and Yoplait Pink Lids for two great causes! Students are asked to bring in (cleaned) pink lids from Yoplait yogurt, and turn them into their classroom teachers. Lids will be turned in by Mrs. Alvarez during Winter Recess. Please have them in by Thursday, December 19th.
Should you have any tabs from drink cans, pet cans, or any other can that has a tab, please turn these in as well. Mrs. Alvarez will be dropping off DBFE’s first batch during the Winter Recess. Continue to collect the tabs throughout the year. The second drop off will be in April.
Many thanks to all who participate and special thanks Mrs. Alvarez for her efforts in orchestrating these collections!
Collecting aluminum tabs is a fun and easy way to recycle and more importantly make a difference in the lives of children and families. Since the start of the Tab-A-Thon program in 2005, almost $30,000 has been raised on this program and continue to raise funds for our Houses. This is over 40 million pop-tabs that have been collected and recycled! Our goal is to continue to collect the pop-tabs in 2014 to benefit the environment and continue to raise funds to our Houses.”

Yoplait Pink Lids:
“With every lid redeemed, you’re helping women and families in your community. Donations triggered through Save Lids to Save Lives will benefit Susan G. Komen® and its network of more than 120 local Affiliates. General Mills’ partnership with Susan G. Komen® has supported millions of women fighting the disease in communities across the country by helping to fund education, treatment and research initiatives.”
