National French Fries Day is this Saturday, July 13, and it’s a great opportunity to share how this simple purchase supports families across North Carolina.
EVERY time you purchase an order of fries from McDonald’s restaurants in North Carolina, you’re helping our state’s seven local Ronald McDonald Houses keep families with sick children together and close to the care and resources they need.
Since 2012, McDonald’s across the state have donated millions of dollars to our local Houses simply based on French Fry orders alone. Help us celebrate and support our local families this Saturday with McDonald’s World Famous Fries!
You can make a difference while you shop Amazon Prime Day deals on July 15th & 16th! Simply shop Amazon Prime Day here, and AmazonSmile will donate a portion to Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Carolina.
Volunteers are the Heart of our Houses!
Jim Metze recently celebrated 500 volunteer hours with RMH of Charlotte! Thank you Jim for your dedication to the House, especially on the weekends. Cheers to 500 more hours!

RMH of Chapel Hill Appreciates Google and Google Fiber!
RMH of Chapel Hill extends a big thank you to Google and Google Fiber for the outstanding volunteer services they recently provided their House! The team deep-cleaned rooms, set up brand new gaming equipment, stained their outdoor stage/hobbit house and showed off their baking skills. Their hard work and support was greatly appreciated!
We Love Our Families!
Families like this are why we do what we do! Chris has had more surgeries than any patient ever at Duke University Hospital, while maintaining a positive attitude. He and his mother have been supported by the staff at the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Duke – continuously working to keep families close during their time of need!
