Pop Tab Program
The Pop Tab Program began when a community in Minneapolis collected one million pop tabs to recycle as a fundraiser and the trend has since spread to hundreds of Ronald McDonald Houses across the country.
A pop tab is the small metal tab on the top of aluminum beverage cans. The Sacramento Ronald McDonald House collects these pop tabs to recycle and put the proceeds towards the Adopt-A-Family Program. This program helps subsidize the cost of families staying at the Sacramento Ronald McDonald House.
The House receives thousands of pop tabs each year collected by families, church groups, service clubs, auxiliaries, and student organizations. Saving pop tabs from aluminum cans is an easy and environmentally-friendly way of supporting the Sacramento Ronald McDonald House. A simple plastic bag on the side of your refrigerator is an easy way to get started. As your bag fills, you can drop them off or mail them to the Sacramento Ronald McDonald House. For larger groups, use containers with wide mouths such as oatmeal boxes, paper milk cartons and coffee cans. You can event print out our label and attach it to the side of your container with clear tape.
