It's hard to believe that Sun King started the Collect Your Tabs Challenge 3 years ago. This marks our sixth challenge benefitting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana. Over the holidays we tend to gather more with friends and family. As you celebrate with your loved ones, we challenge you, fans of Fresh•Local•Beer, to collect aluminum tabs, of all types and turn them in for prizes. You can even make it a friendly competition amongst co-workers to see how many tabs you can collect over the holiday season! The challenge goes now until January 7th, 2017.
We ask that all collected tabs will be turned in at on Saturday, January 7th at our downtown Indy Sun King Brewery location (we will ONLY be collecting these tabs on this date for prizes and will ONLY be collecting them at our downtown brewery location). Those who have participated will be awarded various Sun King prizes (see below). The bounty of collected tabs will be dropped off to the Ronald McDonald House to be recycled!
Why Should You Collect Can Tabs?
Not only is the can tab important for the purpose of opening your favorite Fresh•Local•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!
What does the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana do?
Nearly 1,500 families are served at the House each year while their children receive life-saving treatments at Indianapolis-area hospitals, including Riley Children's Hosiptal. Over one billion tabs have been donated in 15 years since the program began, generating about $500,000 in revenue. The Ronald McDonald House focuses on those families with a critically ill or injured child. The House is the only organization in Central Indiana that provides low-cost, short-term-to-long-term lodging for these families.
Fund 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 from October 28th, 2016 - January 7th, 2017. Sun King will continue to collect tabs at various community events around town. Be sure to drop off your collected tabs on Saturday, January 7th, at our downtown brewery location. We will weigh your tabs and reward you with prizes, and then we’ll deliver the collective bounty of tabs to the Ronald McDonald House 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.
