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 for RMHC St. Louis. Annually, these little tabs help generate almost $25,000!
Get started by taking a look at our collection guide. A limited supply of collection houses are available through RMHC, but we encourage you to “go green” by downloading and printing a wrap (4 x 8 in or 8 x 14 in) for your own creative container.
On Saturday, May 5, 2018 we will celebrate our tab top collectors with the annual Tab Top Pandemonium held at the Park Avenue Ronald McDonald House from 10am to 2pm! Supporters of all ages 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. To preregister your collection for the competition, please click here to fill out the online form.
KEYS TO THE HEART PROGRAM
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 stored separately from tabs when turned in). Print these wraps (4 x 8 in or 8 x 14 in) for your container!
ELECTRONIC RECYCLING PROGRAM
Your old electronics can make a big difference for the families who use the Ronald McDonald House or Ronald McDonald Family Room programs here in St. Louis. Donated electronics will be recycled and turned into a monetary donation for RMHC St. Louis.
Accepted electronics include: old cell phones, laptops, power adapters and chargers, holiday lights, home and office phones, extension cords, network gear, satellite receivers and PC towers.
*Currently, these are the only electronics we recycle.
