POP CAN TABS FOR THE RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE
By collecting aluminum pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House of Orlando, you can help wih the operating expenses of the House, making a difference in the lives of those who stay there.
This project teaches math concepts and is beneficial, not only to the families who stay, but the environment as well. Pop tabs are easy to collect and a great way for children to get involved and make a genuine contribution to helping others.
The tabs are easily removed, and cleaner to collect than cans, enabling the House to handle large volumes with less storage space required.
Here's how easy it is to make a difference in the lives of the families who turn to the Ronald McDonald Houses, of Orlando in their time of medical crisis:
Just pop off those tabs from your soda cans, vegetable and soup cans, pet food cans, special diet food, etc. Then, save them in any container and bring them to Mr. Belanger's room. Last year, CTE collected almost 100 pounds of the tabs!
