Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio Poptab Collection
North Central Ohio Geocachers has teamed up with Jaybirdchauffer to collect pulltabs from aluminum cans to help support the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio. Every tab makes a diffence in the lives of the kids at Children's Hospital in Columbus as well as their families. It is easy for you to make a difference! All you need to do is collect your pulltab from your can or cans you collect, put them into a ziploc bag or coffee can, and bring them to any NCOG event. We will be sure Jaybird receives them as part of his collection. For more information, visit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio at RMHC of Central Ohio
