Our Relationship with McDonald’s

RMHC Founding Mission Partner since 1974

From the moment we opened our first Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia, PA, the entire McDonald’s system (owner/operators, suppliers, employees and customers) has helped us support families with sick children providing stability and vital resources.

McDonald’s support extends from monetary contributions and volunteerism, to cause related marketing promotions and the space to place RMHC Donation Boxes that raise money for Chapters around the world. McDonald’s has helped RMHC positively impact millions of children and their families, and continues to provide valuable resources and support to help us expand our core programs and services.

Although the McDonald’s system is our largest corporate partner, RMHC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. RMHC relies on the support of the entire community and greatly values donations from the community and other corporate partners.

Ronald McDonald House Charities’ Longfellow House features a Community Room, available for use by outside groups. The room is available seven days a week between the hours of 8:30am and 8:30pm with prior scheduling. **We are not currently taking reservations for our Community Room due to COVID-19 precautions.**

The room can accommodate 30 people with tables and 40 people with theater-style seating. The furniture in the room may be arranged to meet your needs. Please email [email protected] to check availability and to make a reservation.

While the Ronald McDonald House Community Room can be used by your group at no charge, we encourage you to visit our “Wish List” to see if there are any items you can contribute to help us meet our mission. We rely heavily on the community’s generous support to provide lodging and support for the children and families.
