Pop tabs fundraiser

Little things can make a big difference! You can help children with medical needs by collecting the little tabs you pull to open soda, soup or other aluminum cans. The funds generated from recycling these aluminum gems help offset expenses. Collecting tabs can be an easy and fun project. Tabs can be dropped off at the Interfaith Center in our door slot. These tabs will then be taken to the Shriner’s a local organization that helps support kids and their medical care. Many groups such as schools, corporations, clubs and communities participate in this program and it's a simple way to make a big difference. Collecting pop tabs is a great program that is an easy way for you to serve to the community.

Pop Tab Program FAQs

Why do you only collect the tabs from cans?

Although the whole aluminum can is valuable, the tab is much cleaner and easier to collect in large quantities than whole cans. The tab of a standard soda can is made of high quality, high-grade aluminum. By itself, it doesn't mean much, but when you pull together, pop-tabs add up and become a valuable donation to your local organization.

Who can participate with the Pop Tab Program?

Anyone! Because they're common and easy to collect, pop-tabs allow virtually any individual or community organization to participate. By supporting this project it provides a terrific opportunity for you to get involved and make a genuine contribution to the community.

How do I get started?

Start collecting! You can use plastic zip-lock bags to collect the tabs in and then bring those bags to the Interfaith Center.

What happens to the tabs?

When a large amount of tabs have accumulated at the Center, we take the tabs to our local Shriner’s for them to recycle. The money raised benefits the families of children with medical needs.

How do I donate tabs?
