Lutheran Church: Save ‘Pull-Tabs’ for Charity

The next time you open a can of soda, soup or any other can with a pull-tab, you might consider saving the top.
A “pull-tab” collection drive is underway at Lutheran Church in the Foothills to help support families of children who have chronic illness. According to Ronald McDonald House Charities, the pull-tabs are a high-grade aluminum that are clean and small, making them easy to store and collect. The tabs collected through LCIF will benefit the Ronald McDonald House in Long Beach.
The idea to collect the pull-tabs locally is a joint effort between LCIF and the Los Angeles Chapter of African Descent Lutheran Association. Over the past 10 years, ADLA-Los Angeles has collected almost 110 pounds of pull-tabs. The aluminum is recycled for cash and helps parents who need the services of the Ronald McDonald House.
Pull-tabs can be dropped off at LCIF, but the church asks that people be careful removing the tabs to avoid the sharp edge.
Weekly Sunday worship with Pastor Rick Hall continues to include programming for young children. Children’s Church is offered during 10 a.m. worship. Families should meet in the church’s sanctuary. After a message for the children from Hall, the kids head to the Youth Room for games, crafts and study.
Holy Communion is offered each Sunday. All are welcome. For those unable to attend, services are livestreamed on the church’s YouTube channel.
Visit lcifoothills.org for event details. For more information or to request/offer help, email office@lcifoothills.org, or call (818) 790-1951.
The church is located at 1700 Foothill Blvd. in La Cañada Flintridge. Office hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Friday.
