The Canyon Lake Lions Club recently delivered 90,654 aluminum pull tabs to the Inland Empire Ronald McDonald House. The pull tabs are weighed and sold with the proceeds benefiting the Ronald McDonald House. Recycling is an important way the Ronald McDonald House brings in much-needed funds.

The Ronald McDonald House has 380 hours in more than 64 countries. The Inland Empire Ronald McDonald House provides a “home away from home” to families while their children receive medical treatment at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital and other nearby hospitals.

For more than 15 years, the Canyon Lake Lions Club has had a relationship with the Ronald McDonald House. The club collects pull tabs from various sources throughout the year and delivers them to the Ronald McDonald House once the collection reaches a sizable amount.

The Canyon Lake Lions Club received recognition for its donation of more than 90,000 pull tabs. Photo provided by the Canyon Lake Lions Club.

Aluminum pull tabs can be taken from beverages, cat and dog food, food cans, tennis ball canisters, or anything with an aluminum tab. One tab on its own may not be worth much, but when the community “pulls together,” it can make a big difference.

Community members who would like to contribute to the club’s next pull tab collection can drop off their pull tabs on the front porch at the home of Lions Club President Nancy Coughlin at 23620 Continental Dr. There is also a collection jar at the senior center. To arrange for a pickup, contact Lion Jeff at 602-478-5656.
