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.

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!
What does the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana do?
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?

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.
