Mc Thanks for support

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

ON BE­HALF of Ron­ald McDon­ald House Char­i­ties (RMHC), I would like to sin­cerely thank the Isis Dis­trict lo­cal com­mu­nity for their support of McHappy Day. The event, which took place at McDon­ald’s restau­rants across the coun­try on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 18, has bro­ken the McHappy Day record and raised in ex­cess of $3.2 mil­lion na­tion­ally. To put this into per­spec­tive, this equates to more than 24,600 nights’ ac­com­mo­da­tion in a Ron­ald McDon­ald House for fam­i­lies with se­ri­ously ill chil­dren. The money raised will al­low us to con­tinue to of­fer our pro­grams and ser­vices to se­ri­ously ill chil­dren and fam­i­lies across the coun­try. Th­ese pro­grams in­clude Ron­ald McDon­ald House, Ron­ald McDon­ald Fam­ily Rooms and the Fam­ily Re­treat Pro­gram, to name a few. The funds col­lected on McHappy Day will also help fu­ture plans. In or­der to meet the grow­ing need from fam­i­lies, RMHC is aim­ing to build or ex­tend five Houses, open eight more Fam­ily Rooms and fur­ther de­velop pro­grams such as the Ron­ald McDon­ald Learn­ing Pro­gram in the next few years. Since RMHC be­gan in 1981, our pro­grams have helped more than 100,000 fam­i­lies through some of their tough­est times. Mr Mal­colm Coutts OAM CEO, Ron­ald McDon­ald House Char­i­ties
