INDIANAPOLIS — Larry “The Can Man” Van Ness has been collecting pop tabs for years - but one in particular got its own special bag.

On Wednesday, Van Ness donated his 25 millionth pop tab to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana.

"I get them from bars, I get them from schools, it's like a big family. I get them from everywhere," Van Ness said. "It's kinda cool."

Each pop tab has been individually hand counted.

Those at the House say he's helped in more ways than one.
