Thanks to the initiative of a middle school student, Sacred Heart Academy will be collecting tabs from aluminum cans in a recycling effort that supports the Ronald McDonald House. We have placed silver paint cans in the dining room by the trash cans for depositing the tabs. We encourage tabs from home, as well. At the end of each school year, we will bring our tabs to the Ronald McDonald House.
The RMH receives $0.75 per pound of tabs. We have learned that the reason they collect the tabs is that a tab has the highest concentration of aluminum out of the whole can. The RMH collects 8,417 pounds of tabs a year. That means they receive close to $6,312 a year to help families that come to the RMH.
Please help us with this program and to help make a difference to the Ronald McDonald House!
