Start students collect pull tabs for St. Jude’s

Richland Parish 4-H challenged each club in the parish to collect pull tabs as their community service project for the year. 

The pull tabs will be sold and the proceeds will go to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in Memphis.

Start 4-H’er Brady Afeman, says that St. Jude’s is his favorite charity, so he volunteered to serve as chairman of the pull tab collection committee.

Afeman asked teachers to set up a collection site in their classrooms.
