    RONALD MACDONALD POP TOP PROGRAM

    Are you looking for a simple way to help families in need? Look no further! Schools, families, and businesses alike collect pop tabs throughout the year and donate them to our House. Ronald McDonald House Charities.

    Anyone can collect pop tabs, and that’s what makes this program so great! It’s an easy way to help the families who call RMHCA home, and we hope you’ll think of them whenever you recycle a pop tab.

    Grab a container to store your pop tabs in! We suggest Ziploc bags, paper bags, or boxes/bins. Please avoid soda bottles, jars, milk jugs, and plastic grocery bags.

    Collect your pop tabs!  And bring them into the Ledyard Senior  Center.
