McDonald’s USA Kicks Off Annual Ronald McDonald House Charities ‘Give a Hand’ Fundraiser to Raise Funds for Families in Need Annual fundraiser puts emphasis on family togetherness Business Wire SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- November 11, 2013 The 11^th annual Ronald McDonald House Charities “Give a Hand” fundraiser kicks off this week in McDonald’s restaurants throughout Sacramento, Stockton and Modesto with a goal of raising $5 million nationally. From now until Nov. 20, 2013, supporters will be able to give a hand to families in need by purchasing a paper hand at all participating McDonald’s restaurants throughout Northern California. Each donation, available in $1, $3 or $5 denominations, supports Ronald McDonald House Charities family-centered programs in the U.S., such as Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern California which enables families with sick children to stay together during treatment at local hospitals, helping them cope better and heal faster. The more hands sold, the more families are helped. In addition to the “Give A Hand” fundraiser, McDonald’s supports Ronald McDonald House Charities year-round through donations from Happy Meal or Mighty Kids Meal sales, in-restaurant Ronald McDonald House Charities Donation Boxes and various local initiatives. “We are so grateful to receive the support of McDonald’s since opening our doors in 1998,” said Stacey Hodge, Director of Community Relations. “Because of programs such as ‘Give A Hand,’ so many local families in need have been able to heal together and find the vital resources they need to help their children.” New this year, McDonald’s has partnered with Snapfish by HP to strengthen the annual fundraiser by celebrating customers who donate through a Family Togetherness Photo Contest. The Family Togetherness Photo Contest invites families to upload a photo that demonstrates what family togetherness means to them. Families who enter will have the chance to win prizes including a family vacation, prizes from Snapfish by HP, and more.
