NEHS Service Project
Posted on 05/21/2019
Five years ago the Knob Noster Elementary Chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society started a service project under the direction of Ms. Andrea Breshears to collect one million pop tabs to donate to the Ronald McDonald House which uses the tabs to support families with children in the hospital that stay at the Ronald McDonald House in Kansas City or visit the Ronald McDonald Family Room.  This month, the students of KNE helped NEHS to reach that goal  by collecting over one million tabs.

Mr. Alan Lubert, Community Relations Manager at Ronald McDonald House Charities - Kansas City came to KNE to collect the tabs and thank students for their help. He shared, "The students and staff at Knob Noster Elementary have donated the largest number of tabs in our 2018-19 school year Tons of Tabs school program.  In their April Character Assembly, they recognized the character trait of Service.  They are truly service-minded students."

Mr. Lubert stated that their annual Pop-tab Pandemonium event was held on Saturday, May 11 and that  the Knob Noster tabs were added to the tons of tabs that were collected that morning from schools, businesses, families and individuals.  They have recycled more than 13 tons of pop-tabs in 2018.  The recycling proceeds help to provide services to families and children who stay with them and are a win-win for our environment.
 "Congratulations, Knob Noster Panthers, for your donation to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City."
