Retired School Resource Deputy Spearheads “Pop Top” Drive for Charity
 
In August 2013 over 100 pounds of
drink can tabs or “Pop Tops” were delivered to the Ronald McDonald
House Charities on behalf of Retired Levy County Sheriff’s Office School
Resource Deputy (SRO) Donna Roe and the Bronson Middle/High School. Before
retiring in 2012, SRO Deputy Roe instituted the community service drive at the
Bronson Middle/High School wherein students were asked to collect and turn in
“Pop Tops” in exchange for community service hours. These hours are needed
to fulfill their requirements for the Bright Futures scholarships offered to
High School Students.

 

Students collected around 250,000
tabs that weighed in at over 100 pounds. With such an overwhelming response, this
program has been adopted by the Williston and Chiefland School Resource
Deputies at their schools. The race is on to see which school can collect the
most “Pop Tops” for donation to the Ronald McDonald House Charity.
The Ronald McDonald House Charity recycles the aluminum “pop tops” and uses the
money received to fund their programs, helping families in need. If you would
like to participate in the drive just collect your “Pop Tops” and
drop them off at your local Levy
County High
School attention to the SRO.

 

SRO Deputy Roe maintains her Law
Enforcement credentials as a reserve Deputy for LCSO and continues to volunteer
her time to our schools. The LCSO and students applaud her innovative ideas and
tireless devotion to our community.
