Donating to Ronald McDonald House Charities made easy

By  | 

RENO, NV (KOLO) Donating to Ronald McDonald House Charities® Northern Nevada (RMHC) just became a whole lot easier at McDonald’s restaurants throughout Northern Nevada.

“Round-Up for RMHC” allows customers the option to make a donation to their local RMHC chapter by rounding up their total purchase to the next whole dollar, regardless of payment method.

Reno is one of the first markets in the country to debut the program, which is fully integrated into the front-counter registers as well as new restaurant technology, including in-store ordering kiosks. Drive-thru guests can also “Round-Up for RMHC” when placing their orders.

“We are thrilled to be one of the first in the country to launch this important initiative and look forward to making a big impact in all of our local restaurants,” says McDonald’s owner/operator and RMHC board member Chad Humason. “We now have another way for our guests to offer support to the families and children using the services of RMHC right here in Northern Nevada.”

“Round-Up for RMHC” donations from McDonald’s restaurants throughout Reno, Lake Tahoe, Carson City and other outlying areas will support Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern Nevada and the Reno Ronald McDonald House.

“We are extremely grateful that the local franchise owners are paving the way for this program and appreciate their partnership and constant support for the charity,” says Laurie Gorris, Executive Director of Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern Nevada. “Every penny truly makes a difference to our families so the extra few cents from a transaction will go a long way in helping us keep families together.”

Similar programs have been implemented in McDonald’s restaurants around the globe, including France, Australia and the Netherlands. “Round-Up for RMHC” has also launched at McDonald’s restaurants in Sacramento and Chico as well as Fresno and the Central Valley.
