Pop Tab Collection Week: CCS is excited to be participating in the pop top tab program to benefit the Ronald McDonald Charities of Arkansas. This organization provides a “home away from home” including lodging and meals for families of children facing extended hospital stays in Little Rock. They also host a NICU family room at UAMS as well as a mobile dental unit that provides free dental care to schools around Arkansas.
