New Technology Makes Donating to Ronald McDonald House Charities Easier
San Diego CA— To celebrate the launch of its new technology, Round-Up for RMHC, San Diego County McDonald’s partnered with local nonprofit Opera4Kids to host an opera performance at a Linda Vista McDonald’s for children and families staying at Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego.
At the event, more than 30 children and their families served by San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House – a home away from home for families with a hospitalized child – were treated to an opera performance by Opera4Kids, as well as Happy Meals and refreshments.
The event highlighted how each Round-Up for RMHC donation benefits families experiencing a medical crisis and using RMHC services. For families with children receiving medical treatment, it’s those moments, those minutes, those nights with each other that give them the strength and support they need.
As part of its continued commitment to innovation and technology, McDonald’s developed Round-Up for RMHC to serve as an additional donation option for customers as our society becomes increasingly cashless. The new technology introduces charitable giving to the McDonald’s menu by providing customers the opportunity to round-up their purchase to the nearest whole dollar at the digital self-order kiosk and the front counter, all year-round, regardless of what payment method they prefer. Customers simply select the “Round-Up for RMHC” button at checkout on the kiosks or let the cashier at the front counter know they would like to round-up their purchase.
“With every cent donated to RMHC, McDonald’s customers are providing families something priceless, time together, and we cannot thank them enough for their support and generosity,” said Leslie Mannes, a San Diego County McDonald’s owner and Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego board of trustees member. “Round-Up for RMHC makes giving easier and we hope this innovative approach to fundraising will continue to support Ronald McDonald House Charities and the families it serves for many years to come.”
