Many Ronald McDonald Houses work with local recycling centers to receive money for collecting tabs from aluminum cans - including those from pet food cans, vegetable and soup cans, as well as soda cans. This popular fundraising program began in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1987. Since that time billions of pop/pull tabs and well over a million dollars have been collected in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).
