One of White County’s schools recently showed its unity and compassion as the students, parents, faculty, and staff united to help families of children who are enduring a stay in the hospital.
Two brothers, 14-year-old Dylan Lewis, a ninth grader at White County High School, who is receiving treatments for a recurring brain tumor, and 10-year-old Chase Lewis, who is in fifth grade at Woodland Park Elementary, have been working on collecting pull tabs from canned drinks to donate to the Ronald McDonald House. Their goal was to collect the most tabs possible to help families who stay at the facility.
Classmates, teachers, faculty, and the community donated over 300 pounds of pull tabs, which were collected by the various grade levels at Woodland Park Elementary School.
This is the breakdown of the amount of tabs collected.
-Kindergarten – 5 pounds
-First – 23.94 pounds
-Second – 39.25 pounds
-Third – 14.69 pounds
-Fourth – 24.69 pounds
-Fifth – 217.69 pounds

-Mrs. Teena – 36.13 pounds
The pull tabs will be taken and donated to the Ronald McDonald House. Pull tab fundraisers helps the Ronald McDonald House offset its costs and provide services to families at a reduced cost or no cost.
