|You Can Help the Ronald McDonald Charities
POP TAB COLLECTIONS-Also check out the link at the bottom for more ways to help.
Ronald McDonald Houses collect pop tabs instead of entire aluminum cans because it's more hygenic to store tabs than cans, and collection and storage is easier. The program is an easy way for people of all ages to support RMHC and know they are making a difference for families and children.
If your local Ronald McDonald House participates in the program, it's likely cardboard collection containers in the shape of a house have been distributed to schools, community and civic groups and other organizations in your area. Collect pop tabs to drop off at one of these areas, or contact your local House about getting a collection container that you can be responsible for filling through one of your own groups.
After the tabs are collected, the local RMHC Chapter brings the collection to local recycling centers, where they are weighed to determine their value (values can vary significantly). The recycling center then sends the local RMHC Chapter a check for the total value.
