Collecting Pull-Tabs for the Ronald McDonald House
Olin Elementary School participates in the Elementary School Pull-Tab Contest. Collecting the pull-tabs is an easy and fun way to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The Ronald McDonald House of Iowa City ships the pull-tabs collected to a recycling center for processing. They receive money from the recycling center based on how many pounds of pull-tabs get delivered. Annually the pull-tab collection program generates over $14,000 to support services for the families and children that the Ronald McDonald House Charities serves. Every pull-tab saved helps!
During the 2014-2015 school year, we collected 4625 pounds of pull-tabs. We increased our collections during the 2015-2016 school year to 5389 pounds!
We are beyond proud of all the students' hard work and will continue to collect pull-tabs.
Here is our 2016-2017 progress so far. In September, we delivered 55 pounds of pop tabs to the Ronald McDonald House. Let's keep collecting!
