Save your pop can tops for Ronald Mc Donald House. They get paid per pound. Last year they collected enough tops to earn $10,000. We are fortunate that Jeanne Reddick has her family collect tops at their bar. With her contribution our latest trip to RMcD weighed about 15 pounds! They were very appreciative.
RMcD is in the middle of construction of rooms for 17 more beds. They are always full and will make good use of the new rooms.
We raised funds for Make-A-Wish with a basket raffle at our Eleusinian Brunch this year.
