RMHC DONATION BOXES
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 over $100,000 was collected in Central Texas 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.
First Fridays at local Central Texas McDonald’s
Every first Friday of the month, Central Texas McDonald’s employees proudly wear RMHC CTX t-shirts or buttons instead of their typical uniforms to encourage customers to donate their change into the RMHC donation canisters.
Next time you order a cup of McDonald’s coffee or grab an afternoon snack, be sure to donate your spare change in the donation boxes. Every donation, no matter the amount, will make a meaningful difference to families with children in Central Texas’ hospitals.
