To the Editor:
Another year has come and gone and it’s time to collect the “tabs for kids” again. I will be taking them in the middle of October. Anyone who has tabs to go, call me at 330-739-5501 and I will collect them. I have been taking the tabs to Akron Children’s Hospital since 1999. I take them to the dialysis department. They cash them in to buy games, videos, books and other things so the kids don’t get bored while taking treatments.

They also have birthday parties for the kids and, if the family needs money for gas or medicines, they give it to them.

We have people from the surrounding areas of Carrollton and, it is because of them, I took 236 pounds last year. Hopefully, this year will be more than last year. Thanks so much to everyone who continues to save the tabs for the kids. I know the families really appreciate it.
