Donate Soda Can Tabs for Ronald McDonald House

Saturday, July 1, 2017 - 01:00 to Sunday, August 20, 2017 - 17:00


What's the point in collecting soda can tabs for charity?

Silly as it may sound at first hearing, it turns out that there's an excellent reason after all.

The fact is that the pop-top tabs that open soft drink cans contain the highest quality aluminum - by far - in the cans.  So although they're small, they're valuable! 

Revenues generated by the sale of donated tabs will be used to support the operation of our local Ronald McDonald House, which provides a home-like environment for families with children being treated for serious illnesses at Fairfax Hospital. 

Prior to Works Sunday (August 20, 2017), you can drop off your tabs in specially-marked collection boxes at particpating Works Sunday congregations.  Or if you prefer, on Works Sunday itself, bring them by St. Thomas a Becket Catholic Church, 1421 Wiehle Avenue, Reston, VA 20190, between the hours of 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm.

Either way, it's an easy way for everyone to make a difference in the lives of some very special kids and their families.
