With the holiday season fast approaching, McDonald’s is partnering with the Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities New York Metro Chapter.
Ronald McDonald House is a local organization that provides critical resources and support for families with ill or injured children. RMHC New York Metro keeps families with sick children close to the medical care they need and the families they love.
They provide accommodation, a community of support, and vital resources to families seeking medical treatment for their child in the greater New York Metro area through 9 core programs -- the Ronald McDonald House in Long Island, the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital and through financial support of the partner Ronald McDonald Houses in Manhattan, Valhalla, Long Branch, and New Brunswick and the Ronald McDonald Family Rooms in Brooklyn, Neptune, and Long Branch.
Offered exclusively at McDonald’s restaurants in the New York Metro area, local customers can purchase a Christmas Spectacular™ Family Meal box now through December 30.
The meal, which includes two Big Mac Sandwiches, one twenty-piece Chicken McNuggets, two medium fries, and two Holiday Pies, is packaged in a special box with a QR code that includes access to a ticket discount for performances of the 2021 Christmas Spectacular.
For every ticket sold using the discount, $1 will be donated back to Ronald McDonald House Charities New York Metro.
McDonald’s limited-edition Christmas Spectacular™ Family Meal box is available on McDelivery, mobile ordering, in-stores and via McDonald’s drive-thru in the New York Metro region.
“We are grateful to local McDonald’s restaurants for supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities New York Metro through this special holiday program,” said Matt Campo, CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities New York Metro.
“This initiative will support RMHC’s mission to provide families with home-cooked meals, private bedrooms, fully equipped kitchens, and laundry facilities near to the medical care they need at leading hospitals in our region.”
McDonald’s has supported RMHC programs around the world for more than 44 years by facilitating fundraising in restaurants, donating expertise and resources, and volunteering with local Chapters.
In 2019, McDonald’s developed Round-Up for RMHC technology to serve as an additional donation option for customers as our society becomes increasingly cashless.
