Our Relationship With McDonalds
RMHC Founding Mission Partner since 1974
The first Ronald McDonald House was opened in 1974 in Philadelphia, PA. The entire McDonald’s system (owner/operators, suppliers, employees, and customers) helped to support families with sick children providing stability and vital resources.
McDonald’s Involvement and support:
- Franchises partner with us for promotional and fundraising events.
- McDonald’s employees volunteer with us.
- McDonald’s owners and operators serve on local boards.
- Donation boxes at local restaurants provide a key way for McDonald’s customers to support Ronald
McDonald’s House Charities programs.
No company can solely fund our programs and the growth needed to serve more families. We count on the support of the entire community!
We greatly value the contributions of volunteers and donors who so generously give their time and resources to help our families.
