Tabs Can Make a Difference

The Tabs Can Make a Difference Campaign is meant to help the Ronald McDonald House Charities, which provide families with children in the hospital a low-cost place to stay, eat and recharge while their loved ones are receiving the critical care that they need. 

From 2012 to 2014, over 25 departments, student organizations, and individuals have collected 200 pounds of pop tabs for Ronald McDonald House Charities, which is the equivalent of about 258,800 tabs! We are very proud of what we were able to accomplish in such a short time! We will continue to collect tabs this year in an effort to collect 1 million tabs and have NIU become a part of the Ronald McDonald  ‘Thanks a Million’ Club! 

If you would like to start collecting tabs in your office, or have any questions please e-mail or call 815-753-1421. 

If your tab house is full, please empty the box into an envelope and inter-office mail it to Destiny McDonald in Student Involvement & Leadership Development, Campus Life Building Room 150.

To drop off tabs from your residence hall, apartment, business, or home please leave them at the front desk of the Campus Life Building, Room 150. We are located on the corner of Lucinda and Normal in DeKalb, IL.
