Each year the Sam Houston Student-Athlete Advisory Committee raises funds for the Ronald McDonald House at M. D. Anderson Hospital with its "pop tab" drive.
A total of 257.4 pounds of pop tabs were collected during the 2013 spring semester drive. All 17 sports teams at Sam Houston plus the coaches and athletic staff donated to the total amount.
Each year, the pop tab poundage gets higher. During the 2012 spring semester drive, 212.3 pounds of pop tabs were collected. In 2011, the total was 195.72 pounds.
The "Pop Tab" drive is one of several community service projects Sam Houston student-athletes undertake to help the Huntsville and Greater Houston area.
