Pop a top for charity


By Nick Runyan for NLJ

Ken Conklin has been collecting the flip tops off of cans for several years, and saving them up to take to Arizona to help a woman who wants to help others. The pop tops will be donated to a program that benefits the Ronald McDonald House, an organization that provides greater access to healthcare for children, and he hopes a few more residents will join the cause.

Conklin told the News Letter Journal that a woman he befriended in Arizona has been saving tops from aluminum beverage cans for nine years towards a goal of collecting 2,000 pounds of pop tops. A number of Ronald McDonald House locations collect the tops for recycling, generating thousands of dollars annually, and she plans on donating at a location in Los Angeles.
