A pop tab contains more aluminum than the entire can itself, which is why you see “Pop Tab” donations.
Avancos employee, Amanda Cloud, asked the office to save the pop tabs we accumulate from all of the soda that we drink. Her Father, Randy S. Cloud, is a Shriner and donates them to the Shriners Hospitals for Children. The money that they earn from recycling the pop tabs goes to the Shriners Hospitals for Children for research. Their mission is to:
- Provide the highest quality care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special healthcare needs within a compassionate, family-centered and collaborative care environment.
- Provide for the education of physicians and other healthcare professionals.
- Conduct research to discover new knowledge that improves the quality of care and quality of life of children and families.
Amanda’s Father traveled to Cincinnati, Ohio in the US to visit the new hospital wings that they were dedicating.
We wanted to recognize Amanda for Thinking Globally, Acting Locally. Avancos is proud to have employees that are always looking for ways to better the world we live in. She challenges all of us to look for ways we can help and get involved.
