Start Saving to Serve in Orlando

Looking for a way to contribute that doesn’t take a lot of time or energy? Prior to the annual conference, start collecting pop tabs! Bring them with you to Orlando and drop them in one of the marked containers located at Registration, the Conference Concierge, or the ACUI Booth. We’ll gather all of the pop tabs and deliver them to Ronald McDonald House Charities in Orlando! RMHC

  • Why pop tabs? Ronald McDonald House Charities collects pop tabs and recycles them in exchange for dollars, which support the children and families served.
  • What is a pop tab, you ask? Pop tabs are the little aluminum tabs from cans, like soda, pet foods, canned fruits, soups, and more.
  • Why just the pop tab? While an entire can or mounds of cans would earn more dollars for Ronald McDonald House Charities, they also take up more space. Pop tabs are easier to collect and store prior to recycling.

Start collecting now, and aim to fill a small mason jar for the conference or engage your campus to collect them on behalf of ACUI and Ronald McDonald House Charities in Orlando! If you live near a Ronald McDonald House, you can contact them to obtain a Ronald McDonald Pop Tab Collection House.

You can also decorate your own! Don’t worry though, we’ll take them in jars, plastic bags, or boxes; however you can easily collect and transport them.
