Helping RMHC children and their families
McDonald’s restaurant operators, suppliers, employees and customers have helped support the charity since it was founded over four decades ago. We are the Founding Mission Partner to Ronald McDonald House Charities and we use our size and scope to help RMHC serve families in 64 countries and regions around the world. Since 1974, RMHC has supported millions of children and their families.
By making and facilitating cash and in-kind contributions, McDonald’s helps enable RMHC to keep families together when their sick children are treated far from home. RMHC focuses on three core programs to keep families near to the medical care and resources they need:
- Ronald McDonald Houses – more than just a place to sleep, each House is just steps from the hospital and provides meals, comfort and support to families with sick kids.
- Ronald McDonald Family Rooms – located within the hospital, this program allows families a place to recharge, rest and have a snack just steps from their hospitalized child’s bedside.
- Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles bring medical, dental and health care resources to children and families in vulnerable communities.
