Your spare change goes a long way to help families with sick children
A dime here. A quarter there. It might not seem like much, but when millions give, those coins can help children and families significantly. Watch the video to see the impact that change had on one family.
RMHC Donation Boxes are our system's largest ongoing fundraisers. Last year, more than $54 million was collected worldwide. In the Bay Area alone we collected over $400,000 to support crucial programs and services for children and families.
Did You Know?
- If every McDonald's customer dropped in a penny into an RMHC Donation Box every time they visited, we could raise more than $250 million to support RMHC children and families around the world.
- One full Donation Box helps a family stay together at a Ronald McDonald House for one night while their child receives care at a nearby hospital.
- One full Donation Box can help provide a dental screening for a child in a Ronald McDonald Care Mobile.
- Change collected from Donation Boxes can help give families a place to rest in a Ronald McDonald Family Room, just steps from their child's hospital bed.
Next time you visit a McDonald’s please drop your spare change in the RMHC Donation Box and help keep families close to the care and resources they need.
