RMHC Donation Boxes

Your spare change adds up to a lot of help!

You may think, “It’s just one penny.” Or, “I’m just one person.” But one penny, one dime, one quarter can add up to so much more if every one of us donates. One penny can change the life of one child, one family, one community. And it all starts with one person – YOU.

The RMHC Donation Boxes found in local McDonald’s Restaurants are one of the biggest ongoing fundraisers for Ronald McDonald House Charities of WNY. Your spare change – no matter the amount – can help create big change for families and children in our community.

The nickels, dimes and quarters you donate when you visit McDonald’s help Ronald McDonald House Charities of WNY give families access to quality health care as well a place to sleep, eat and cope while their children are hospitalized. Last year alone, more than $120,000 was collected in the counter and drive-thru donation boxes.

Just how powerful is the small change dropped into the donation box? A full donation box could let a family stay together at the Buffalo Ronald McDonald House for up to 11 nights while their child receives care at  nearby hospitals.

Why donate?

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

A big thank you goes out to all of the  McDonald Restaurants of WNY and North West PA Owner/Operators, Managers, crew and customers for making this program such a success year after year!

Your small change can make a big difference!
