Colasanti's Wheelchair Fund
Collecting Pop Tabs And Making Donations To Children And Families In Need Since 1994
It takes about 4000 pounds of pop tabs for one wheel chair. It takes approximately 1,500 pop tabs to make 1 pound therefore we need 6,000,000 tabs for one chair.
In 2013, the pop tab fund collected $10,000 worth of pop tabs and aluminum from our local community. With this money the pop tab fund was able to assist 15 people with their equipment purchases. Donations were given to people as young as 2 years of age to 60 years of age.
Equipment being purchased are wheelchairs, physiotherapy equipment, lifts for vehicles, bike for children.
wHAT WE COLLECT:
The types of aluminum, being saved are: Pop Cans and Tabs, Pie Plates, Foil Lasagna Pans, Fruit Cup Lids etc. The aluminum is sold to the recycling plant and the money is then sent to Colasanti’s, which we put directly into the Colasanti’s Wheelchair Fund.
Our company is proud to donate to over 100 local community charities/events each year.
A few of the events and groups that we support annually includes the Colasanti Cup Soccer Tournament, Ruthven Apple Festival, Relay For Life, KDHS Basketball Tournament, Crime Stoppers Wild Game Dinner, Knights of Columbus Wild Game Dinner, Kingsville Minor Soccer, Kingsville Minor Baseball, Group Hug Apparel, Relay For Life Canadian Cancer Society, Fantastic Father’s and more…
