McDONALD’S CUSTOMERS ARE SHOWING THEIR LOVIN’ #forRMHC
May 4th, 2015
For 40 years, and with the support of Mission Partner McDonald’s, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) has worked to help critically-ill children heal with their family by their side. Since 2003, the restaurant chain and its customers have help raise more than $47 million to help the Charity ensure children and families can cope and heal together. Now through May 10, customers will have the opportunity to once again show their support and lovin’ #forRMHC during the Lovin’ #forRMHC fundraising campaign.
Starting May 1, RMHC-Madison is encouraging customers, to support Lovin’ #forRMHC by visiting a participating McDonald’s restaurant and purchasing a paper Heart for $1, $3 or $5. All proceeds from every Heart purchase will go directly to supporting RMHC and its mission directly improve the health and wellbeing of children.
“At RMHC we offer services and programs that strengthen families during difficult times and offer the comfort, care and support when it’s needed most,” says Executive Director Kevin Huddleston of RMHC-Madison. “The continued support of McDonald’s and its customers through programs like Lovin’ #forRMHC ensures we’re able to help bolster a family’s physical and psychological wellbeing so they can focus on getting and keeping their child healthy and happy.”
RMHC has been a partner in enabling family-centered care for 40 years and is a vital part of the health care continuum. Through improved access to medical care, RMHC services enhance a family’s hospital experience as well as give families a place to rest and recharge so they can focus on their child’s wellbeing while staying together.
“Our Ronald McDonald House and its cause is near and dear to our hearts,” said Rick Lomman, local McDonald’s Owner and Operator. “With everything the House does for our communities, we’re more than happy to give back through the ‘lovin’ #forRMHC’ campaign.”
