MASON CITY, Iowa – A north Iowa family is taking a negative situation and making it positive, by donating a unique collection.
The sisters of Victor Koenigsberg who was killed in December when he was hit by a car were going through his belongings, when they found quite the collection: thousands and thousands of pop-tabs that Victor had been saving up.
Thursday, they took the tabs to a Mason City McDonald’s to donate them to Ronald McDonald house charities.
“He had collected all of these over probably all of his life and he loved children and he was collected them for the Ronald McDonald house,” said his sister Terri George.
The proceeds from the donation will go straight to the Rochester Ronald McDonald house.
“It’s actually overwhelming, you know to see a life’s work to be donated to help people,” George added.
It’s hard to say exactly how much money the tabs will provide for the charity the donations are being weighed at another location, to determine their value.
