Since 2003, over $30,000 has been collected for RMHC Maine through Tab Top donations!
Across the state of Maine, individuals, groups, schools, and companies are working together to collect tab tops to benefit RMHC Maine. The tab top program invites people of all ages to collect aluminum tabs from cans. When we receive tab top donations, the tabs are recycled and turned into a monetary donation to RMHC Maine. Annually, these tabs help generate thousands of dollars to ensure that we can continue to provide a “home-away-from-home” for families all year long! Thanks to the generosity of all our supporters who pull tabs all year long!
