The FYM will be participating in the 17th Annual Pull Tab Collection Challenge for the Ronald McDonald House of Nashville!
Did you know that the pull tab from any aluminum can (soft drink, beverage, cat food or soup can) is part of a major fundraising effort for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville? By simply saving this tiny pull tab, you can help raise thousands of dollars to support the families of seriously ill or injured children receiving medical treatment at Nashville area hospitals.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville’s Pull Tab Program has an agreement with a local recycling company to receive a premium rate per pound for these tabs. Through this recycling program we are raising more than $5,000 a year to help with our operating expenses.
So why save the pull tab and not the entire can? The pull tab is more sanitary, convenient and more importantly anyone can participate. Individuals, schools, churches, clubs and businesses can join in the fun!
Interested in helping the cause? Here is what you do…
- You can participate, whether you are an FYM student or not, and no matter how many you collect.
- Next time you open a can, please pull for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville!
- Pick up a collection container through the Church Office or contact Michael.
- Drop you containers off at our designated collection site at the Church on or before November 17th!
The FYM is hosting a Change Can Drive for Jorge, a student we sponsor at the City of children in Ensenada, Mexico.
Pick up a can from one of the alcoves off of the Main Foyer. Fill it up with change, cash, checks, or all of the above. Do it as an individual, family, or bible class.
Turn in to the Office on or before December 19th!
