Local Children Explain How Happy Meals & Fries Support Families Across NC
From a Child’s Perspective:
How McDonald’s Supports Ronald McDonald House Charities Every Day
Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Carolina is fortunate to have the support of McDonald’s, its largest corporate sponsor. You may not realize this, but the restaurants and customers support our seven houses every single day.
Across the state, more than 400 participating McDonald’s carry the RMHC Donation Box, which collects spare change all year long to support our statewide programs and services. McDonald’s also donates a portion of the proceeds from your Happy Meal and French Fry purchases to support our local Ronald McDonald Houses.To help spread this message, several local children took part in this video to explain how these purchases are supporting families across the state and to, most of all, say thank you.
We are exactly one week away from this year’s Day of Change! And we need your help to make it bigger than ever! How? Head to your local McDonald’s on Monday, October 15th, and drop your spare change into the RMHC Donation Boxes located at the drive-thru and the front counter. The funds from these Donation Boxes support children and families across North Carolina through our seven Ronald McDonald Houses.Please post about your participation in the Day of Change on social media and be sure to tag RMHC of NC on Facebook and Twitter, and include the hashtag #DayofChange.
Don’t forget to reach out to your family and friends and challenge them to participate!
N.C. Ronald McDonald Houses Impact in 2017
In just one year, our seven Houses made a huge impact in the lives of families with sick or injured kids. They serve families from across the state, the country and world. In 2017 alone, the Houses collectively served families from all but two counties in North Carolina. Thank you to our leaders, volunteers, hospital staff and supporters. We couldn’t do this without you!
