McDonald’s, a mission partner, played a vital role at the inception of both Ronald McDonald Houses in Bangor and Portland. After more than three decades, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC); local McDonald’s Owner/Operators, their employees and their customers; and our community remain committed to supporting our programs and services. Each year, RMHC of Maine receives its support from 61 McDonald’s restaurants in Maine and 4 in northern New Hampshire region.
This funding comes from donation boxes, Happy Meal sales, events, and in-store fundraisers as well as other promotions. In addition to monetary support:
- McDonald’s Owner/Operators participate as members of our Board of Directors.
- McDonald’s Owner/Operators and their suppliers raise money and awareness through in-store promotions and fundraising events.
- Local McDonald’s employees serve as dedicated volunteers and brand ambassadors.
