NEWPORT— North Country Career Center’s Human Services program has joined forces with the local Shriners Project in a novel initiative aimed at supporting children and families. The project involves the collection of beverage tabs, which are subsequently sold as aluminum to a company in Springfield.
The money generated from the sale of the tabs is used by the Mount Sinai Shriners to assist families with children suffering from neuromusculoskeletal conditions or burn injuries. The Shriners are known for their philanthropic efforts, and this latest initiative continues their mission of lending a helping hand to those in need.
The tab collection campaign is currently being promoted by the Human Services Program. In a bid to make it easy for locals to contribute, a drop-off center has been established at the Career Center.
Every single tab collected makes a difference, and the collective effort can significantly impact the lives of children and families in need.
