Tel Hai Accepting Aluminum Tabs Benefiting the Ronald McDonald House

Tel Hai resident Barbara McGraw.

Join us in the ongoing collection of aluminum tabs for the Ronald McDonald House of Philadelphia. Donations can be dropped at the Garrett Community Center and the StoneCroft Commons.  Since 2014, we collected 541 pounds!

Aluminum tabs from canned fruit, soups, soda and other canned goods are accepted. The Ronald McDonald House sells the recycled aluminum, which then directly funds Ronald McDonald House initiatives. Typically, $10 covers a family’s one-night stay. Since the program’s inception, the Philadelphia site has collected more than 300,000 tons, raising more than $165,000.

Tel Hai resident Barbara McGraw, who leads the effort, began collecting aluminum tabs from soda cans almost 25 years ago when she learned that generated funds support families needing essential health and care services.
