The season of giving is upon us and local area McDonald’s restaurants across Central Florida are kicking off the season with a 4-week friendly competition now through December 4  in the Third Annual Drive Thru Challenge to encourage local customers to “Round Up for RMHC” and help raise money to benefit their local Ronald McDonald House Charities chapters.

Typically, during this time of year, customers are in the mood to be generous and nonprofits like RMHC have a chance to boost their bottom lines and get the dollars they so desperately need to fuel their missions for the upcoming new calendar year.

That’s why local McDonald’s restaurant employees and local Owner Operators are on their own mission to increase awareness of the Round-Up for RMHC program through Drive Thru orders and plan to remind customers just how easy it is to help their local RMHC chapters. Each time someone orders through the Drive Thru, they can round up their purchase to the nearest dollar or choose to give $1, $3 or $5 for RMHC.

With the Round Up for RMHC program option available at all McDonald’s restaurants nationwide since 2019, customers have an easier and more convenient way to donate year-round to RMHC and help families with sick or injured children stay together in times of need. RMHC programs provide comfort, care and support for families with sick children when its needed most.

McDonald’s restaurants are aiming to raise more than $1.5 million dollars across 1,600 restaurants from the Carolinas to the Keys during this friendly annual competition.
