That little tab that you use to open your soda makes a BIG difference at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Memphis

Collect Pop Tabs at home, work, school, church or in your community organization, then drop the tabs off at Ronald McDonald House and we'll be happy to recycle them for you. If you live out of town, you may also recycle the tabs yourself and donate the proceeds to the House. 

For more information about Pop-Tab-Palooza contact Lisa Haguewood, Communications Specialist, at (901) 495-0650 or email poptabpalooza@rmhc-memphis.org

 

The Pop-Tab-Palooza Event 

In preparation for spring, Ronald McDonald House of Memphis asks the community to help “pick up the tab” by collecting pull tabs off soda cans, pet food, canned vegetables etc. and bring them to our annual Pop-Tab-Palooza. 

The pop-tabs are recycled in order to raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House.  Collectors deliver their pop-tabs during this time to be weighed and the top donors are awarded across a variety of categories. There are awards for the most pop-tabs per grade level, age group, and the individual with the most pop-tabs. The local business, organization, or group that donates the most is also awarded. The Pop-Tab-Palooza promotes more community-minded children, supports children and families in need, and helps the environment at the same time. 

For more information about Pop-Tab-Palooza contact Lisa Haguewood, Communications Specialist, at (901) 495-0650 or email poptabpalooza@rmhc-memphis.org.
