Public Policy


Gettysburg College was built on the foundation of “doing great work,” not just for the betterment of ourselves and our education but also for others in the college and surrounding community. This project seeks to do precisely this, encourage everyone, including students, tourists, and community members, to do great work in benefiting others around them. It primarily consists of a comprehensive summary of the plans and actions required to create a community-wide tab collection bin to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). The project seeks to achieve two main goals: encourage people to collect and donate their aluminum can tabs to benefit RMHC and foster the relationship between students and community members over a common goal. For over 45 years, the Ronald McDonald House Charities have helped families with children in critical health conditions. With the help of college students and the surrounding Gettysburg community, we will donate valuable aluminum tabs to benefit a worthy cause; after all, we are “Better Together.”
