Pull Tabs

Since 2002, we have collected nearly 23,000 pounds of tabs.  So now is the time to start filling up those Ziploc bags, milk jugs and coffee cans.  Every little bit helps. Together we can make a difference. For more information on Kids Cancer Alliance please visit or contact K of C coordinator John McCarthy at

All proceeds benefit the Kids Cancer Alliance (KCA) and Indian Summer Camp (ISC).

KCA was started in 1981.  The vision was to provide a "normal" camping experience for children with cancer.  During that first summer, 20 campers attended camp.  The volunteer staff consisted of doctors and nurses from the University of Louisville, as well as members of the community.

This past summer, the KCA ran four separate camps in which 241 children attended, all at no cost to them.   The Knights of Columbus had breakfast with the kids, and presented KCA a check for $1000.00, generated by last year's pull-tab competition.  

KCA now provides 56 recreation and support programs, that serve more than 300 local families fighting childhood cancer.
