COOK CO., GA (WALB) -

Cook County Primary School has collected over a hundred pounds of can tabs for the Ronald McDonald House.

The school has been working with the Cook County Civitan Club to collect the tabs since 2004.

The class with the most collected tabs will receive a party of their choice.

School Nurse Ginny Herring said they started collecting the tabs to help kids with special needs in the community.

The Ronald McDonald House uses the can tabs to help pay for its electric bill.

"We wanted to join this club because we had a desire to help people and we have a desire to help the community. We also focus on special need children because that's a population that absolutely gets forgotten about," said Herring.

The school and club are on track to have 200 pounds of can tabs this year.
