Our Relationship with McDonald’s
From the moment the doors opened at the first Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia, the McDonald’s System including owner/operators, suppliers, employees and customers, have called RMHC’s mission their own. For 40 years, the entire system has provided invaluable support, enabling RMHC’s growth from one House helping a few families into international network of child-centred programmes serving more than seven million children and families annually. This relationship is widely accepted as being one of the largest and most enduring corporate-charity partnerships in history.
This partnership was also instrumental in creating the Malta Chapter of the RMHC, which was set up through the initiative of Premier Restaurants Malta Ltd, the operator of McDonald’s in Malta. Premier Restaurants continues to provide support to RMHC Malta, giving us the opportunity to place our donation boxes and coin spinners McDonald’s restaurants in Malta and Gozo, as well as making a contribution for every Happy Meal sold throughout the year.
Premier Restaurants Malta also provides ongoing administrative support to the Chapter and makes our cause the focus of the McHappy Day fund-raising campaigns.
