Our Relationship with McDonald's 

As our founding and forever partner, McDonald’s Canada is committed to supporting RMHC Southwestern Ontario. Last year alone, their contributions accounted for 13 percent of our total revenue! 

Funding from local owner/operators in partnership with RMHC Canada is raised through initiatives like McHappy Day, the McDonald’s Happy Meal program, coin box program and Day of Change. Local McDonald's Restaurants also provide "little" things like fresh coffee and to-go coffee cups that accommodate our guest families' needs. Thanks to McDonald’s Canada, we are also able to leverage large national partnerships and committed employee volunteers.

Our Relationship with the Medical Community 

To help provide families with supportive resources, we rely on strong partnerships with the medical community. These relationships have grown over our 30+ year history and help us to bridge access to health care for families through:

  • Ronald McDonald House London located 165 steps from London Health Science Centre Children’s Hospital and located nearby additional medical centres including University Hospital and St. Joseph’s Hospital.
  • Ronald McDonald House Windsor, the first Canadian House-Within-A-Hospital,  located directly inside Windsor Regional Hospital.
  • Ronald McDonald Family Room London located inside London Health Sciences Centre Children’s Hospital.

Medical professionals and communities contribute to RMHC Southwestern Ontario in a variety of different ways:

  • They are actively engaged as members of our board of directors and committees.
  • They provide support for our Ronald McDonald Houses and space for the RMH Family Room London and Ronald McDonald House Windsor.
  • They assist with contributing to operating costs and donations of in-kind services.
  • They volunteer their time and services through the Dinner Program and other volunteer initiatives.

This valued support helps us to expand our program capacity to meet the demands of those families that need to stay close to their seriously ill or injured children.
