TAB TOP PROGRAM
The tab top program invites people of all ages to collect aluminum tabs from beverage cans to support The House That Love Built! Thanks to our friends at Didion Orf Recycling, the tabs are recycled and turned into a monetary donation to RMHC St. Louis. Annually, these little tabs help generate almost $25,000 thanks to the generosity of the St. Louis Community!
Every spring, we celebrate our tab top collectors with Tab Top Pandemonium. People are invited to save their collections all year to drop off on this day while enjoying free food, games and music! Collections will be weighed and prizes will be given out to those who collected the most tabs in several different categories.
This year’s event will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2018 from 10am to 2pm at the Park Avenue Ronald McDonald House.
To preregister your collection for the competition, please click here to fill out the online form.
Don’t have tabs but still want to help? Collect and donate your unused keys to one of our Houses through our Keys to the Heart Program. When you donate the keys you no longer need, you open doors for families with seriously ill children. (Please note that keys must be kept separate from tabs when collections are turned in.
HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
1. FIND A CONTAINER
You can collect tab tops in anything! Collect your stash in bottles, boxes or other creative containers. Help us “go green” by downloading and printing a wrap for your containers. Download and print a 4 x 8 in or 8 x 14 in wrap. A limited supply of collection houses are also available through RMHC.
2. START COLLECTING
Gather all your aluminum tab tops! Ask family, friends, community organizations or local restaurants for help, too.
3. TURN IN YOUR COLLECTION
Drop off your tabs at any of our three Ronald McDonald Houses during regular business hours, 9am-6pm, or call 314.773.1100 to set up a drop-off time.
