Your spare change adds up to a lot of help
A dime here. A quarter there. It might not seem like much. But when millions give, the amount those coins help children and families worldwide is truly amazing.
The RMHC Donation Boxes located in participating McDonald’s restaurants are our system’s largest ongoing fundraisers. It’s from people like you filling the Donation Boxes with quarters, dimes and nickels. Last year alone, more than $50 million was collected worldwide and in 2013 $180,000 was collected in Central Pennsylvania alone.
Just how powerful is the small change dropped into the Donation Box?
- If every McDonald’s customer dropped in a penny into an RMHC donation box every time they visited, more than $250 million could be raised to support RMHC children and families around the world.
- A full Donation Box could let a family stay together at a Ronald McDonald House for up to one night while their child receives care at a nearby hospital.
- Change in the Donation Boxes can give families a place to rest in a Ronald McDonald Family Room just steps from their child’s hospital bed.
