VHEW and Ronald McDonald House

VHEW will be collecting pop tabs (from cans) all year long to donate to the Ronald McDonald House downtown (Children Hospital). Every classroom will be collecting them. Please save your pop tabs and bring them to VHEW. Tell Your family, friends, and neighbors. This is a great way for VHEW to help others!


Ronald McDonald Houses collect pop tabs instead of entire aluminum cans because it's more hygienic to store tabs than cans, and collection and storage is easier.  The program is an easy way for people of all ages to support RMHC and know they are making a difference for families and children. 


If your local Ronald McDonald House participates in the program, it’s likely cardboard collection containers in the shape of a house have been distributed to schools, community and civic groups and other organizations in your area. Collect pop tabs to drop off at one of these areas, or contact your local House about getting a collection container that you can be responsible for filling through one of your own groups.

How much?

After the tabs are collected, the local RMHC Chapter brings the collection to local recycling centers, where they are weighed to determine their value (values can vary significantly).  The recycling center then sends the local RMHC Chapter a check for the total value.
