Toledo, OHIO — Local McDonald’s restaurants are providing another way to support Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Ohio with the return of the Sleeves for Support program. This fundraiser was developed in partnership with Coca-Cola and will generate funding for RMHC through sales of insulated beverage sleeves specifically designed to hold 30-ounce cups from McDonald’s. Sleeves will be available for purchase beginning September 6 at $6 each while supplies last.
“We’re excited to work with our partners at Coca-Cola to provide another option for our customers to support RMHC while enjoying their McDonald’s favorites,” said local McDonald’s Owner/Operator and RMHC of Northwest Ohio Board member, Jessica Hall. “Not only do these insulated sleeves help RMHC, they also help keep our guests’ drinks colder longer and are the perfect game day or tailgate accessory!”
New for 2022, the Sleeves for Support will feature an exclusive Ohio State Buckeyes® design in scarlet and gray, perfect for football season. The classic red insulated sleeve will also be available for purchase.
“The Sleeves for Support campaign is one of many ways McDonald’s and its customers lend their support RMHC,” said Chad Bringman, Executive Director/President, RMHC of Northwest Ohio. “McDonald’s was the founding mission partner of our charity when the first Ronald McDonald House opened 45 years ago, and the local McDonald’s team has always been an integral part of helping us fulfill our mission to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families.”
In addition to Sleeves for Support, local McDonald’s restaurants give back through the Round-Up for RMHC program, where patrons can round their order up to the nearest dollar; through the Penny Per Happy Meal initiative where a portion of every Happy Meal sold benefits the Charity; and through RMHC Donation Boxes where customers can drop their spare change. Last year, more than $200,000 was raised locally through these campaigns, and directly contributed to RMHC of Northwest Ohio.
