In the spirit of the holiday season, McDonald's owner-operators in the Chattanooga area recently donated more than $287,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Chattanooga. This contribution helps provide comfort and care to families with seriously ill children who are undergoing treatment at nearby Chattanooga hospitals, according to a news release.
These funds were raised through various local initiatives, including Happy Meals for the House, and Shamrock Shake.
"We are incredibly grateful for the generous support of our local McDonald's owner-operators," A.J. Davis, vice president of community engagement of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Chattanooga, said in the news release. "Their commitment to our mission is truly inspiring, and we are so thankful for their partnership in helping us provide comfort and care to families with sick children."
Steven Overby, a McDonald's owner-operator in Chattanooga, said he is proud to support Ronald McDonald House, the company's namesake charity.
"We know that every dollar we donate can make a difference in the lives of families who are going through some of the most difficult times in their lives," he said in the release.
