Throughout February, McDonald’s restaurants across South and Central Texas are holding a fundraiser to support local Ronald McDonald House Charities chapters in their mission of keeping families close while an ill or injured child receives medical care.
According to a news release, the fundraiser, coined “Share the Love,” is taking place through Feb. 14 to benefit four chapters: RMHC of Central Texas, RMHC of San Antonio, RMHC South Texas and RMHC of Temple.
Customers visiting a local McDonald’s are asked to add a donation of $1, $3, or $5 to their meal in the drive-thru or at the register inside the restaurant, the release said, adding participating locations will have paper houses on display, each representing a donation that will benefit the local RMHC chapter.
“We’re proud to support our local RMHC chapters and the families they serve,” said Ed Lutito, local McDonald’s owner/operator and McDonald’s of South and Central Texas president, in a statement. “It’s our sincere hope that the funds raised help change the lives of many families in our area.”
In addition to the two-week fundraiser, customers may donate to RMHC any time they visit McDonald’s by choosing to round up their check to the nearest whole dollar. Round-Up for RMHC is available at kiosks inside the restaurant or by letting the cashier know in the drive-thru or the front register that a customer would like to round up the purchase.
