Collect the pull tabs from aluminum cans and containers and donate them to the Ronald McDonald House. The tabs are made of a high-grade aluminum which we recycle - the proceeds then go directly to help families staying at the House. The program runs all year long and collected tabs may be dropped off at the Ronald McDonald House any day from 9am-9pm.
