Our Relationship with McDonald’s

As a non-profit, we rely on the support of our entire community – both individuals and businesses. Since the opening of the first Ronald McDonald House in 1974, McDonald’s has played a vital role in the growth and continued success of RMHC around the world.

Locally, the McDonald’s Owner/Operators of the Three Rivers Co-Op — representing over 150 regional McDonald’s stores — support RMHC Pittsburgh and Morgantown by:

  • Participating on the Charity board of directors
  • Organizing and promoting local promotional and fundraising events
  • Donating directly to the Charity through fundraising campaigns, Charity sponsorships, in-kind donations, and personal donations

Every time you visit a local McDonald’s restaurant you support RMHC Pittsburgh and Morgantown by:

  • Purchasing a Happy Meal or Mighty Kids Meal
  • Dropping spare coins and bills into the donation canisters
  • Buying a USA Today

Our partnership with McDonald’s is strong but no one organization or individual alone can fund our operating budget so we rely on a diverse pool of supporters, friends, and resources to impact countless lives every year.
