Every year Ronald McDonald Houses serves over 10,0000 families. But there are still many families who need our help and are turned away due to lack of space. Some Houses report turn-away rates as high as 70 per cent.
The Houses offer families so much more than just a roof over their heads. Qualified staff and dedicated volunteers are committed to providing comfort and care to the families, so they can focus on healing their sick child. And they are filled with families who share a common bond – love for their sick child.
Each Ronald McDonald House is independently owned and operated by not-for profit organizations relying on the support of McDonald’s, RMHC Canada and individual donors, corporate donors and community groups.

On on Wednesday, May 8th, visit your local Mcdonald’s to celebrate McHappy Day 2013. $1 from every Big Mac®, Happy Meal®, and Hot McCafé® beverage you buy that day will be donated to Ronald McDonald Houses and other children’s charities across Canada. Make it a quick and easy meal and help sick kids and their families across Canada.
