Other Ways To Help
Collect Pop Tabs
Collecting pop tabs is a great way to teach kids about philanthropy and the importance of recycling while raising funds to help children and their families at the same time. Some of our Chapters raise thousands of dollars with their pop tab collections – up to $30,000.
Here’s how it works: Aluminum beverage can tabs are collected and sold for cash. Of course, the entire can could be recycled, but it would create a very difficult problem for delivery and storage. The tabs have captured the imagination and interest of thousands of collectors.
Pop tabs can be delivered to either the Denver Ronald McDonald House (1300 East 21st Avenue, Denver, CO 80205) or the Aurora Ronald McDonald House (932 Potomac Circle, Aurora, CO 80011). They are then taken to the recycling center.
