McDonald’s Southern California Franchisees Launch In-Restaurant Fundraiser to Support Families with Hospitalized Children

From April 1-25, customers can support Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California by donating $1, $2 or $3 at their local McDonald’s. 100% of proceeds will help provide services for families when they must travel far from home to access lifesaving medical care for their children.

As a result of the pandemic, the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California (RMHCSC) are facing a decline in donations, despite the overwhelming need for the care and services provided through their local programs at the Ronald McDonald Houses, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms and Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times. To help raise funds for families who must travel far from home to access lifesaving medical care for their child, McDonald’s Southern California franchisees are launching an in-restaurant fundraiser to help bolster donations to RMHCSC and the families they serve by supporting the RMHCSC 2021 Walk for Kids Fundraiser.

From April 1-25, customers can support RMHCSC and the Walk for Kids by donating $1, $2 or $3 when they order in the drive-thru or at the register. Customers can also donate year-round with any order by rounding up their total order to the nearest dollar, with the difference going directly to RMHCSC.

RMHCSC programs help more than 5,000 families every year by providing them with a place to stay near and even in hospitals with Ronald McDonald Houses and in-hospital Ronald McDonald Family Rooms. The 2021 Walk for Kids fundraiser, which kicked off last month, is aiming to raise $2.4 million to support families in Los Angeles, Bakersfield, Pasadena, Long Beach, Orange County and Inland Empire.

To support this program, head over to your nearest Southland McDonald’s restaurant or visit walkforkids.org for more information. All proceeds benefit RMHCSC providing comfort, care, and support to children and families in their time of need.
