Pop tab collections

You see them every time you open up a soft drink or soup, sometimes even when you feed your pet. Those tiny little tabs are easy to overlook, but they can make a BIG impact on the families of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Charlotte!

Though small, tabs are clean and easy to collect – and they add up fast. RMHC of GC takes tabs to our recycling partner, United Scrap Metal, and exchange the tabs for money for our guest family fund! Although it costs RMHC of GC approximately $130 a night to shelter a family in medical crisis, families are invited to make only a small financial donation, but many cannot afford to contribute anything at all. The money from pop tabs helps to ensure that we are able to accommodate every guest, regardless of their ability to pay.

million tab challenge 

RMHC of Greater Charlotte encourages schools, organizations, businesses, and small groups to take on the “Million Tab Challenge” to support guest families.  It takes approximately 1,000 tabs to make one pound – why not try to collect 1,000 pounds? Anyone and everyone can join the Million Tab Challenge, all you have to do is start collecting and drop off tabs. 
Questions? Contact Kayla Roberts.

Why does RMHC collect pop tabs? How can something so tiny make a difference in the lives of families? Watch the video below and see how the full circle life of a recycled pop tab helps keep families close.
