Our McDonald’s Relationship

RMHC Founding Mission Partner since 1974

From the moment the first Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia, PA opened, the entire McDonald’s system (owner/operators, suppliers, employees and customers) has helped us support families with sick children by providing stability and vital resources.

Locally, the Buffalo Ronald McDonald House opened its doors to families in 1983 with the encouragement and support of 11 local McDonald’s Owner/Operators and their 67 restaurants in Western New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania.

We are tremendously grateful for the support of the McDonald’s Owner/Operators who spearhead promotional and fundraising events on our behalf. Their efforts generate a major portion of the annual operating revenue for the House. They continue to provide vital foundational support to RMHC of WNY through the following activities:

Several local Owner/Operators also serve as volunteers on our Board of Directors and committees and along with McDonald’s employees participate in many local RMHC fundraising events.
