HICKORY NC – Catawba Science Center is teaming up with The Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Carolina for the 1,000,000 Pop Tab Challenge.

The goal of the 1 million beverage tabs in support the Ronald McDonald House is a way to helping provide a home away from home for seriously ill children and their families who are receiving medical care at nearby hospitals .

“We are very grateful for the support of the McDonalds restaurants,” said Alan Barnhardt, CSC executive director. In total, 25 restaurants in counties including Catawba, Iredell, Caldwell, Mecklenburg, Wilkes, and Burke will be participating.

“This speaks to the wide impact of both CSC and RM House Charities,” said Barnhardt, regarding the focus both organizations have on a large region – not just the Hickory area.
