Customers at three South Bend-area McDonald’s restaurants have helped raise more than $35,000 to support Ronald McDonald House Charities of Michiana through the ‘Round-Up for RMHC’ program so far in 2023. This morning at the McDonald’s in Edwardsburg, Michigan, local McDonald’s Owner/Operator Jay Okayama presented a check to representatives from RMHC Michiana. The Edwardsburg location has raised more than $15,000.
The ‘Round-Up for RMHC’ program provides an easy way for McDonald’s customers to support Ronald McDonald House Charities by allowing them to ‘round-up’ their order total to the nearest dollar amount. The donation goes directly to support RMHC. This campaign provides millions of dollars to Ronald McDonald Houses every year.
“The Round Up program is a great example of many small gestures having a big impact,” says Okayama, who owns restaurants across Michiana. “We’re so thankful to our customers who chose to support Ronald McDonald House Charities and the important work they do to support the families of seriously-ill children. A little bit goes a long way to helping families when they need it most.”
Ronald McDonald Houses help families with children who are ill or injured, ensuring they can stay together and be near the medical care they need. Ronald McDonald House programs provide private bedrooms, fully-equipped kitchens and laundry facilities, home-cooked meals, transportation and much more.
McDonald’s customers can support Ronald McDonald House Charities year-round with the ‘Round-Up for RMHC’ program. When placing their order in the dining room or drive thru at any McDonald’s restaurant, they’ll be asked if they’d like to Round-Up their order total to support RMHC.
