POP Tabs for Ronald McDonald House

Did you know that the little tab you pull to open your can of soda can make a significant impact on fundraising for the Ronald McDonald House? Rio Rancho Elementary students are collecting pop tabs for Ronald McDonald House of New Mexico. The money raised will help offset expenses of essential items needed by families staying at Ronald McDonald house. Please help us help by saving your pop tabs. Collection bins can be found in the common areas of the main building and the annex. Click here for more information on pop tabs and Ronald McDonald House.
