JCPS Ring Tab Collection for Ronald McDonald House

     The JoCo Family has been collecting ring tabs for the Ronald McDonald House for 8 years.  Currently there are 32 schools participating in this collection effort in Johnston County.

All families stay at the Ronald McDonald House at no cost to the family.  Our ring tabs help pay for additional food, gas and phone cards, extra clothing, diapers, cooking supplies, gift cards to WalMart, Food Lion, Target and Harris Teeter.  The mondy from our ring tabs also helps pay for toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, sheets, pillow cases and postage stamps.

Over the past eight years, the JCPS family has collected over 8 million ring tabs.  Several school clubs have adopted the Ronald McDonald House and collect materials on their wish list.

Begin collecting today! Use cans, ziplock bags, coffee containers to place your ring tabs in the school collection bucket.  Please feel free to also contribute items from the wish list and place them in the ring tab bucket as well.

All schools are in competition for the RT Cup.  This is a traveling trophy that is awarded to the school that contributes the most ring tabs over the course of the school year.  More than one school takes this challenge very seriously!  Four Oaks Elementary is the current RT Cup Champs- let's try to bring this trophy home to Swift Creek Middle this year!  

Thank you for your willingness to participate in this very worthwhile project!
