McDonald's is Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) largest & longest corporate donor. We are strong partners in supporting RMHC and have chosen Ronald McDonald House Charities as their "charity of choice" for over 39 years. While all RMHC chapters are part of the Ronald McDonald House Charities system, each is operated at a local level by its ow board. Members of the McDonald's family serve as volunteers on the boards and committees of the local Chapters, working along with other members of their community.
McDonald's restaurant involvement extends beyond monetary support:
McDonald's host in-store fundraisers throughout the year. These include donation boxes on the counter and in the drive-thru, conducting annual world-wide fundraisers annually such as:
- Day of Change
- Give A Hand
- Join Us for 1
- A portion of proceeds from every Happy Meal® and Mighty Kids Meal® in the Houston region have been graciously donated by McDonald's Owner/Operators
- All of these fundraisers invites its guests to donate to RMHC
- A portion of proceeds from all French Fry sales, funds the RMHC scholarship program. Scholarships are given out to 85 deserving local high school graduates each year totaling $170,000! A program that gets "Dreams of College, Granted"
