Ronald McDonald House Charities has been McDonald’s charity of choice for more than four decades. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, but McDonald’s is our largest corporate donor. A portion of the annual operating costs for the Charleston Ronald McDonald House is graciously funded by McDonald’s and Owner/Operators of local McDonald’s restaurants. The remainder of our annual operating income comes from the generosity of individual and corporate donors. McDonald’s involvement extends far beyond monetary support.
Donation Box Program – McDonald’s customers support RMHC through a variety of fundraising events and programs, including donations in RMHC Donation Boxes found in restaurants throughout West Virginia, Southeast Ohio and Eastern Kentucky. Each year, canisters will provide more than $100,000 to our local RMHC chapter, which is a tremendous boost to our local operating budget.
Although McDonald’s is our largest corporate donor, no company can solely fund RMHC programs and our projected growth. We need the support of the entire community and greatly value any support you can afford to RMHC, whether it’s through cash donations, your time or fundraising efforts.
Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC)
Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC) is a critical partner of RMHC of Southern West Virginia, and we are extremely proud to support their efforts to provide excellent healthcare to children in West Virginia and beyond. Our partnership, which has continued for more than three decades, grows stronger each year.
Each year more than 3,000 babies are born at CAMC Women and Children’s Hospital, many of which are high-risk births.
CAMC Women and Children’s Hospital is home to the region’s largest and busiest Level IV (highest level) neonatal intensive care unit and level I (highest level) pediatric intensive care unit.
As an integral partner, CAMC has made in-kind and cash donations to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. These donations include:
- Lease over one acre of prime real estate adjacent to Women & Children’s Hospital, for $1/year.
- Housekeeping services to ensure our facility is clean for every guest family.
- Linen services including bedding, blankets, towels and washcloths for every house guest.
- Purchasing the previous Ronald McDonald House and arranging another lease to facilitate the move to our current facility.
