Small change makes a big difference…

A dime here. A quarter there. It might not seem like much. But when millions give, the amount those coins help children and families worldwide is truly amazing.

The RMHC Donation Boxes in McDonald’s are one of our biggest ongoing fundraisers. Last year alone, over $100,000 was collected in the Greater Northwest Florida area.

Just how powerful is the small change dropped into the Donation Box?

  • If every McDonald’s customer in the U.S. donated a penny every time they visited a McDonald's, we could collect more than $94 million to support RMHC children and families throughout the country.
  • A full Donation Box could let a family stay together at a Ronald McDonald House for up to 1 night while their child receives care at a nearby hospital.
  • A full Donation Box could provide a child with a dental screening in a Ronald McDonald Care Mobile.
  • Change in the Donation Boxes can give families a place to rest in a Ronald McDonald Family Room, just steps from their child’s hospital bed.

Show your support when you see a donation box at your local McDonald’s, and drop in your spare change. Spread the word and suggest to your friends and family that they do the same.
