Collect the pull tabs from aluminum cans and containers and donate them to the Ronald McDonald House. The tabs are made of a high-grade aluminum which we recycle - the proceeds then go directly to help families staying at the House. The program runs all year long and collected tabs may be dropped off at the Ronald McDonald House any day from 9am-9pm. Click here to download the Pop Tab flyer and label to affix to your own container or stop by the House to pick up your free Pop Tab House.
Service or Product Donation
We couldn’t fulfill our mission without the support of the Las Vegas business community. Companies who donate their product or services to the House and fundraising events are critical to our success and are listed on our Community Partners page.
We also look for opportunities for our families to get away from the hospital or to entertain siblings. Tickets to shows or amusement attractions and special services such as massages, salon services, family photography sessions, or fitness passes are greatly appreciated.
If you are interested in becoming a Community Partner by donating your service or product, please contact Stacie Lang, Director of Operations, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (702)252-4663 x2222.
