Tab Collection Info from Shriners Hospital, LOSNA Helma Court #64 and Tabs for Taylor

"No amount is too small when the cause is so great!"~ LOSNA.

We started collecting tabs last June when we were in the process of doing our SHrINE ON SPRINGFIELD walk for Shriners Hospital (~ Springfield Facility) fundraiser. There were some people who could not afford to make a monetary donation to Shriners Hospital so they saved and donated their tabs.

The Old #4 Fire and Hose Ladies Auxilary heard about our fundraiser soon after it was over and decided they wanted to help somehow. They liked the tab collection idea. They decided to ask every member to save their tabs and turn them in at their monthly meetings. The ladies then got their families involved. All they needed now was a catchy title.........and "TABS FOR TAYLOR" was born.

The Tabs for Taylor drive is now collecting tabs from all over VT and NH thanks to the help of family and friends around the 2 states.

We collected over 120,000 tabs from June 1 to November 7 this year. People in a variety of locations around the two states collect them from people and businesses. When Taylor has a check up or other appointment at Shriners Hospitals for Children in Springfield, we gather up everyone's collections and bring the tabs to the hospital. LOSNA takes over from there and the money made from recycling the tabs is then spent on things for Shriners Hospitals for Children. There is more info on this process on the pages below along with a pretty impressive list of things that have been purchased with Tab money over the last 9 years.

I, along with some other "hard core Tabbies" are in the process of setting up public tab collection locations around the 2 states in hopes of getting more people involved with this project. For now if you email me at imninstar(at)yahoo.com I will try to line something up so someone can get together with you.

I will update this as soon as I have a few more confirmed drop off locations and thank you all in advance for helping out with this project and helping Shriners Hospitals for Children.
