A small piece of metal can make a BIG difference!

Collecting pull tabs is a simple and easy way to support the House! We recycle the aluminum tabs and use the money to help support programs at the House.

Drop off your tabs anytime at the Ronald McDonald House or have the tabs recycled in your community and mail a check, payable to RMHC of Mid-Missouri to 3501 Lansing Avenue, Columbia, MO 65201. If you’d like to have your tabs weighed, check out our Pull Tab Pandemonium event below.

Pull Tab Pandemonium

Pull Tab Pandemonium is an opportunity for groups and individuals to visit the House and weigh their tabs to find out how many pounds they’ve collected over the past year. This is the perfect event to teach kids how fun and easy it is to recycle and give back to their community! Awards are given out in five categories (individual, group, elementary school, middle school and high school).

Step 1: Pre-Register! Download the pdf application form and mail or email it to Melanie Dixon, RMHC of Mid-Missouri, 3501 Lansing Avenue, Columbia, MO 65201, Melanie@rmhcmidmo.org.

Step 2: Save Pull Tabs! Store your Pull Tabs in tab houses or Ziploc type bags.

Step 3: Drop off! Bring your tabs to the House on April 25, 2020 and witness the weigh in.

Step 4: Celebrate! The winner in each category is determined by who collected the most POUNDS of tabs.  Winners receive a trophy or plaque, bragging rights and pride in knowing you made a difference in the lives of families with sick or injured children.
