OUR MISSION PARTNER

McDonald’s, our 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 Maine receives its support from 61 McDonald’s restaurants in Maine and 4 in northern New Hampshire.

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.
