RMHC INVITES PEOPLE TO GIVE ONE PENNY AT A TIME TO HELP KEEP FAMILIES TOGETHER ON JULY 1ST
Las Vegas –– For Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) it all started with one: one child who needed health care, one family who hoped to stay nearby and one community who came together to build the first Ronald McDonald House®. And, just one penny can make a difference today in the lives of children and families. RMHC is asking people to support their 1 campaign and “Join RMHC for 1” on Friday, July 1st by adding one penny, one dime, quarter or dollar to the RMHC Donation Boxes at any of the 107 greater Las Vegas McDonald’s restaurants including Boulder City, Henderson, Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Laughlin, Mesquite, Overton, Pahrump, Paradise, Primm, and Searchlight. Money raised from Donation Box collections stays right here in our community to benefit RMHC of Greater Las Vegas.
RMHC plans to connect with supporters to create excitement and mobilize the masses to actively support RMHC families by giving in small ways. Last year alone, nearly $25 million was raised through the RMHC Donation Boxes in the U.S. These funds support programs which provide a bridge to quality health care and allow families to give 100 percent of their time to their children so they can heal faster and cope better. In fact, one full Donation Box could provide a safe place to stay in a Ronald McDonald House for up to one night.
“Our ‘1’ Campaign and the Join Us for 1 event day is designed to raise awareness for the RMHC Donation Box program and inspire greater giving throughout the year by sharing with people our history and the profound impact we have on families’ lives,” said Jennifer Blanchard Smith, senior director of Communications and Special Programs, RMHC. “While some may think that one penny or some spare change found in a couch can’t really mean much, we know that for RMHC families, small change means resources and stability they desperately need at a critical time in their child’s life. It adds up to a lot – there’s undoubtedly strength in numbers. We are very thankful for the millions of McDonald’s customers who help to support families through our programs by donating their change all year long."
