Streetsboro fifth-grader helps coordinate pop can collection effort for Ronald McDonald House

by Alison stewart | staff writer Published:

Brandy Spreitzer, her daughter Kiely, and the city of Streetsboro have made a big difference in the move to collect pop can tabs to benefit Akron's Ronald McDonald House.

Money from the tab donation is used to buy items for the families who stay at Ronald McDonald House while their children are undergoing medical treatment for cancer and other serious diseases.

Since then, the effort has donated the pop can tab equivalent of between about $640 and nearly $1,100 for those two years, depending on the price per pound of the tabs.

Kiely, 10, is now in the fifth grade.

"I feel that collecting pop tabs is a big help to the Ronald McDonald House because of how they helped my cousins and our family," said Kiely. "It's kind of my way to give back for all of their help."

Kiely has started a Facebook page for her effort, "Giving Back Through The World Of Pop Tabs" where people can learn more about donating.
