Ronald McDonald House CharitiesAugust 5, 2015 -
Through their network of more than 60 Chapters from regions worldwide, the Ronald McDonald House Charities have helped more than 5.7 million children and families with health and happiness. Their vision of creating support programs to directly improve the lives and wellbeing of children extends to the lives of families, communities, and eventually the world.
They believe that the strongest medicine a child can have is the love and support from their family. Therefore, the RMHC has created Ronald McDonald Houses and Family Rooms to provide a place for families of sick children to eat and rest while waiting for their child to get better. This allows parents to not have to worry about cooking meals or other chores and focus on the health of their children.
Thanks to the support of McDonald’s and other organizations like the Coca Cola Company and AT&T, the RMHC has been able to improve the lives of children and families. The organization hosts fundraisers such as the Bank of America Chicago Marathon to raise money and awareness and celebrate all they have achieved. All donations, whether corporate or individual, go towards funding their support programs.
