4 HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, APRIL 18, 2014 [ Vanessa and Vincent Montoya delivering the collected tabs. Lordsburg third graders collect pop tabs for Ronald McDonald House Charities Students from Ms. Arredondo's 3rd class at Southside Elementary School have been collecting aluminum pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) since August 2013. The Montoya Family recently took the donation to the Ronald McDonald House in Albuquer- que, NM. There are currently 322 Ronald McDonald's Houses in 52 countries and regions. Ronald McDonald Houses act as a place to stay for families with hospital- ized children who are receiving treatment. Ronald McDonald's Houses provide over 7,200 bed- rooms to families around the world each night, with an esti- mated value of $257 million in lieu of hotel costs. There are currently 161 Ronald McDonald's Family Rooms in 19 countries and re- gions. These Rooms accommo- date over 3,000 families each day who live in the local community and don't need to stay at a Ronald McDonald House. They provide a place for family members to rest, wash clothes, take a shower, or nap near the vicinity of their child. There are currently 43 Ronald McDonald's Care Mo- biles in 6 countries. Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles are mo- bile clinics that offer affordable health care for children in their own neighborhoods. The pro- gram serves more than 100,000 children a year, and saves fami- lies in the U.S. $10 million in medical and dental costs each year. Collecting pop tabs is a great way to teach kids about philan- thropy and the importance of re- cycling while raising funds to help children and their families at the same time. Look for spe- cial RMHC pop tab collection containers in the shape of a house at schools, community and civic groups, and other local organiza- tions in your area. You can also contact a Ronald McDonald House near you to ask about get- ting your own house for collec- tion. In addition to cash dona- tions, there are many other ways to contribute to RMHC, all of which are valuable and can di- rectly benefit your local Chapter and any program it operates. For more information, visit http:// "Thank you to all who con- tributed to this worthy cause," said Ms. Arredondo. "And thanks to the Montoya Family for going out of their way to deliver the tabs!

This information assists lo- cal law enforcement by being the extra eyes and ears for underage drinking in Hidalgo County. In March there was one underage drinking citation in Hidalgo County. With prom and gradua- tion scheduled in the next two months, we hope to send the mes- sage out to both youth and adults that underage drinking is a dan-? gerous ifi~gal activity that is hot tolerated in Hidalgo County. Constructive outlets for youth after Prom include, the After Party, scheduled from 12-4 A.M., and will occur at the Special Events Center in Lordsburg. Since July 1, 2013, law en- forcement has intervened with 6 underage drinking citations/ar- rests and 3 adult underage drink- ing arrests/citations along with 11 adults contributing drugs or alcohol to minors.
