Sales of the Shamrock Shake and Shamrock OREO McFlurry will make a difference in local communities
Johnson City – McDonald’s owner/operators across the Southern Appalachian Region will donate $9,982.75 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Southern Appalachian. This comes after a very successful Shamrock Shake and Shamrock OREO McFlurry campaign earlier this year.
“McDonald’s customers have always played a critical role in raising funds for families staying at local Ronald McDonald Houses while their children receive life-saving medical treatment,” said Malia Grant, CEO of Southern Appalachian Ronald McDonald House Charities, Inc. “We are grateful for this continued support. Through this generous donation, we are able to provide a place of healing for families when they need it most.”
Honoring the legacy of Shamrock Shake’s integral role in the building of the first Ronald McDonald House, participating McDonald’s restaurants donated 25 cents from every Shamrock Shake and Shamrock OREO McFlurry sold from February 3, 2021, to March 31, 2021, to local RMHC chapters.
“As always, we’re thrilled to be able to help Ronald McDonald House Charities serve families in their times of need,” said local McDonald’s owner-operator Jim Davis. “This is yet another opportunity for us to give back to an organization that does so much for others.”
The RMHC of Southern Appalachian provides a supportive “home-away-from-home” for families and their children who are receiving medical treatment at area hospitals. They provide guest families with all the comforts of home – plus a local support network – so they can focus on their child’s healing.
This financial support is one way McDonald’s continues to support Ronald McDonald House Charities and its network of local chapters.
