SBC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee donates 300 pounds of pop tabs to Ronald McDonald House

From the Sun Belt Conference

The Sun Belt Conference announced that its Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) donated 300-pounds of pop tabs in a conference wide community service project to help support the Ronald McDonald House.

The pop tabs were brought to the Ronald McDonald House in New Orleans on Monday for recycling.

SAAC representatives from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette made the largest contribution by collecting 201.5-pounds.

Each Sun Belt campus was encouraged to set up collection areas around campus, within their academic support centers, athletic department offices and during their home athletic competitions.

The SBC staff weighed each school's tabs and declared that the Ragin' Cajuns were the overall winner based on the amount collected.

One of the easiest ways to help the Ronald McDonald House is by collecting pop tabs. This important program helps fund various household expenses. Some of the local Chapters raise thousands of dollars with their pop tab collections.

The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children.

The RMHC believe that when you change a child's life, you change a family, which can change a community, and ultimately the world. They strive to be part of that change and part of the solution in improving the lives of children and their families by providing programs that strengthen families during their most difficult or challenging times.
