DEAR SUN SPOTS: I need to know what organization I can give my can tabs to. Last year I gave them to a woman, but unfortunately, I have misplaced her information. She brought them to the Ronald McDonald House in Massachusetts.

I have over 3,000 tabs to benefit any organization that can use them. It makes me feel good to know I can help someone with just a few minutes of my time. Please call at 743-2817, and leave a message.

Thank you for all the good you do for everyone who reads this local newspaper each day.
