You know that loose change on the floor in the car? In the bottom of your purse? In a jar on your desk? On October 15th, Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) is asking families to donate that extra change to help keep millions of children together with their families.
This special day marks the opening of the very first Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia in 1974. Ronald McDonald House Charities of Dayton invites individuals, businesses, and community groups to support families with critically-ill children by visiting their local McDonald’s on October 15 to drop spare change into an RMHC Donation Box.
To celebrate Day of Change with our generous community, RMHC Dayton staff and volunteers are heading to 3 select locations in the region for a special in-store celebration:
- McDonald’s at 3157 Dayton Xenia in Beavercreek
- McDonald’s at 530 E. National Rd. in Vandalia
- McDonald’s at 6270 Far Hills Ave. in Centerville
McDonald’s customers who participate in Day of Change are encouraged to share photos and how they helped to support RMHC on social media using #DayOfChange and #forRMHC.
If you are not able to make it to a McDonald’s on Day of Change, consider making an online donation at RMHCDayton.org/donate or collect change at your office, school or organization. Physical donations can be turned in at or mailed to the Ronald McDonald House at 555 Valley Street, Dayton, OH 45404.
Little by little, small donations add up to a lot allowing the Charity to serve more than 4 million families a year worldwide. The RMHC Day of Change presents an opportunity to teach and get children involved in giving back, and an easy, and fun way for families to donate.
