The October 15th RMHC Day of Change — is no ordinary day. It is the day when the entire Ronald McDonald House Charities global system commemorates the opening of the very first Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1974.
To celebrate, we all rally around the Donation Boxes at your local McDonalds Resturants, to ensure that we can continue to keep families close when a child and a family needs to heal.
In fact, the small change dropped in all Donation Boxes helped raise more than $54 million last year for all U.S for Ronald McDonald Houses and the families they serve. Your change also stays local, so please drop #forRMHC!
It will take us a while to count all the coins you donated during your visit to McDonald's, but rest assured, all that small change is making a BIG difference for the children and families that we serve! Because of your support, we can provide stability and resources to more than 5,112 families every year, and support more than 57,607 visits to our Ronald McDonald House and Family Rooms.
