St. Louis sets donation record for Ronald McDonald House-Cincinnati

first_imgBatesville, In.— To many, a pop tab is just a piece of aluminum that opens a can. But to the folks at the Ronald McDonald House in Cincinnati these pop tabs are a valuable resource. Funds received from the Pop Tab Program last year was $25,000.00. All of that money went towards operating expenses, blankets, bedspreads, sheets, and towels. This year, SLS collected a record total weight of 312 pounds of pop tabs. To date, no other school has contributed that much. Our lifetime total weight (2011 donation weight was unavailable) is 1,984.2 pounds. That’s incredible! As the Cincinnati Ronald McDonald House is expanding, the support becomes even more important as they grow to serve all of the families from around the world that need their care.Continue to save your pop tabs throughout the year. You can drop them off in the office at any time. Thank you for your continued support with the student council Pop Tab program.Submitted by: Janet Wilsonlast_img read more

first_imgGhana defender Rashid Sumaila is set to leave South African side Mamelodi Sundowns after receiving offers from France, Russia and Belgium for the centre-back.Belgian giants Standard Liege are among the clubs interested in the defender who is out-of-favour at the South African club.Sundowns says they will not prevent Sumaila from achieving his dream of playing in the top-flight leagues of Europe and will allow the Ghanaian to leave if the offer is right.The 21-year-old defender joined Sundowns at the beginning of the season from Ghanaian side Asante Kotoko and formed a solid partnership in the heart of the defence alongside Alje Schut. But after the arrival of Thabo Nthethe from Bloemfontein Celtic, Sumaila has been relegated to the bench. This has resulted in clubs making offers for the centre-back, with one believed to be coming from Standard Liege.“I won’t mention the name of the clubs but I can confirm to you that we have received offers from Russia, France and Belgium and are prepared to listen,” Sundowns communications co-ordinator Thulani Thuswa told KickOff.com.“It has always been our policy not to stand in the way of players, and if the offer is right for Sumaila we are prepared to engage with interested parties,” adds Thuswa.Should Sumaila leave at the end of the season, it will leave Pitso Mosimane with Wayne Arendse as the alternative option for the centre-back position.last_img read more
