Every year the Canyon Lake Lioness Club welcomes donations of pull-tabs from residents and combines them with their own collection to raise funds for the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House.
The Loma Linda House supports more than 24 families each night. A fee of $5 per night is charged; however, no family is ever turned away due to inability to pay. Funds to operate the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House come from contributions through individual gifts, events, donations and grants.
The Pull-Tab Collection Program was established in 1987 by the Minneapolis/St.Paul Ronald McDonald House community. Many Ronald McDonald Houses work with local recycling centers to receive money for collecting tabs from aluminum cans.
To date, across the country, more than 400 million pull tabs have been collected, generating more than $4 million.
The Canyon Lake Lioness Club plans to deliver its collection of pull-tabs on Friday, May 5th.
Anyone wishing to donate pull-tabs may give them to any member of the Lioness Club or deliver them to Joanna Spiller at 23651 Cruise Circle Drive any time before May 3rd.
