Our relationship with McDonald’s
Ronald McDonald House Charities is McDonald’s charity of choice, but no one can solely support a charity. Ronald McDonald House Charities is an independent 501c3 responsible for raising its own funds. McDonald’s supports RMHC in the following ways:
- Volunteer support
- A penny from Happy Meals from our area stores
- Permitting our donation boxes in its restaurants
- Educational resources
Additional financial support such as event sponsorships and national fundraisers are on a year-to-year basis and not guaranteed or budgeted for.
Our relationship with Carilion Children’s
As pediatric and neonatal patients are referred from area hospitals 150 miles or more away to Carilion, the majority of those referrals come through Carilion Children’s. Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hosptial has been a medical partner from the inception of RMHC of SWVA in 1984 and supports us in the following ways:
- In-kind rent only; we are responsible for upkeep, maintenance, and insurance.
- Shuttle service
- Security as needed
- Linen service
