The 8th grade class at Springfield Christian School is collecting soda tabs as a holocaust project. They want to get a better visual on just a small number of the Jewish lives that were lost.

If you would like to donate soda tabs to help out the 8th grade class, you can send them to the school which is located at 2850 Cider Mill Ln in Springfield.
