LARGEST Pop Top delivery to Houston Ronald McDonald House EVER! Right to left: Marlena, Kailey, Patricia, Jaylin, Kim.

The Ronald McDonald House of Houston is a home away from home for families with children being treated in the Texas Medical Center for cancer or other serious illnesses.

Girl Scouts from Cadet Troop # 3256 and Senior Troop # 3628 delivered 34 milk jugs and a box weighting over 100 lbs to the Houston Ronald McDonald House. This is a service project idea led by Marlena Gann, starting in January 2002. She did the research and found out about the Pop Top Program for the Ronald McDonald House and acquired cardboard fold out houses to be placed in homes, lounges at schools, businesses, churches, anywhere there was an interest that the aluminum can pop tops could be collected. The result was the LARGEST amount of pop tops donated the Houston house had ever seen!

The girls would like to say Thank you to Larry Turnbull and his family who donated the largest amount. Thank you to all the girls and volunteers attending Silver Springs Day Camp for their collection efforts at camp and home. Thank you to all others who made a big impact in the collection!
The girls plan to continue with their Pop Top Service Project. Any individuals, businesses, organizations, churches, that would like to collect the pop tops and have them picked up by the girls can page 713-406-9071.
