McDonald House Charities (RMHC) has provided family-centered care for hospitalized children since 1974. For the past seven years, Cintas has shown our support for RMHC—and raised millions of dollars—by simply collecting aluminum tabs from soda and other cans.

The Cintas E.A.R.T.H. (Every Area Recycling Tabs Help) Campaign is a charitable program that has our employee-partners collecting pull tabs throughout the year and turning them in to RMHC. These tabs are then recycled and converted into much—needed funds that help families live at Ronald McDonald Houses for little to no cost while their children receive medical treatment.

To date, Cintas partners have collected 3,865 pounds of pull tabs—with 971 pounds collected in 2016 alone and more than 70 Cintas locations participating.
