It's that time of year again! Time to start collecting your tabs for our 8th Annual Collect Your Tabs Challenge, benefitting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana!
We challenge you to collect aluminum tabs of all types and turn them in for various Sun King prizes. Join forces with your co-workers, family, and friends to collect as many aluminum tabs (beer, soda, energy drinks, canned water) as you can now until Saturday, July 20th, 2019.
All collected tabs can be turned in on Saturday, July 20th at any of our Sun King locations (Downtown Indy, Fishers Tap Room, or Sun King Spirits in Carmel). Those who have participated will be awarded various Sun King prizes (see below). All of the collected tabs will be dropped off at the 15th Annual Pop Tab and Coin Drop on Monument Circle on Friday, July 26th (11am-2pm) and then the RMHCCIN will recycle all collected tabs!
Why Should You Collect Can Tabs?
Not only is the can tab important for the purpose of opening your favorite Sun King beer, it is also a valuable resource that generates much-needed funds to cover the operating costs to run the Ronald McDonald House to support families in need. Don't forget to recycle your cans too - that is important for our environment!
Nearly 5,000 families are served at the two houses each year while their children receive life-saving treatments at Indianapolis-area hospitals, including Riley Children's Hosiptal. The Houses offer all of the comforts of home including restful places to sleep, spacious kitchens and dining rooms, play areas, a library, laundry facilities, and more.
Volunteers from the community prepare home cooked meals for breakfast and dinner daily in our spacious kitchen and a well-stocked pantry provides staples for guests to prepare their favorite lunch or snack.
With support from local McDonald’s owner/operators and community donors, RMHCCIN is also able to offer scholarships to high school seniors facing limited access to educational opportunities.
Funds received from the recycled tabs adds up to $30-$50K annually. These funds go towards the operating costs of the Ronald McDonald House and will cover the costs of operating 3 rooms in the House for an entire year.
How Can You Help?
Help Sun King collect tabs by participating in the Save Your Tabs Challenge now until July 20th, 2019. Sun King will continue to collect tabs at various community events around town. Be sure to drop off your collected tabs on Saturday, July 20th, at any Sun King location (Indy, Fishers, Carmel).
We will weigh your tabs and reward you with prizes, and then we’ll deliver the collective bounty of tabs to RMHCCIN where it will go to help those in need.

Reminders: Please do not use plastic soda bottles or milk jugs because they’re hard to empty! Keep in mind if the tab sticks to a magnet, it cannot be used. Please check your tabs from soup and other cans - some are aluminum and can be used; others are steel and cannot.
