Info: We collect pull-tabs at Freeport Middle School! The FMS Tabs collection started in 2009 as a Holocaust project to further teach our students about tolerance and other cultures. Our goal is to collect at least six million tabs. Once we reach our goal, all tabs will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities Pop Tab Collections. We have received over 3,000,000 tabs so far. Please help us reach our goal!  Spread the word, we now have 3,500,000 tabs!

Send your tabs to:
