Kids Pulling for Kids Project
Cielo Azul is once again participating in Kids Pulling for Kids, a service project to help our local Ronald McDonald House. Please save any pull tabs from drinks, soup cans or pet food cans and have your child bring them to school. The tabs are taken to a local recycler and 100% of the money goes to the Ronald McDonald House. Last year, Cielo Azul turned in 23 pounds of tabs and we’d like to see that number grow even larger this year! We will keep you updated as we turn them in throughout the year. Thanks for your help!
