Pop Tabs

 We would like to thank the many employees of Plant Operations who have participated in the Pop Tabs for Kids collections.  Plant Operations has been collecting pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House since February 2011

All of the departments in Plant Operations have been collecting pop tabs and contributing to this ongoing service project.  We would like to recognize a few extraordinary contributions. 

Dennis Bouck from the Paint Shop has brought in 3 gallon freezer bags filled with pop tabs! 

The HVAC shop has collected a big box of tabs, contributing almost as much as all the other shops combined.

This program is an easy way for people of ages to support the Ronald McDonald House and know that they area making a difference to families and children.  For more information on the project visit

Thanks for all of your support and remembering to pull pop tabs for charity, and after you take off the tab, remember to recycle the rest of the can!
