McDonald’s Restaurants Of Greater Indiana Offer New Way to Support Ronald McDonald House Charities

(UNDATED) – As Indiana residents are on the go this summer, there’s an easy way to support Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) and the families the houses support.

“Sleeves For Support” are now available at all McDonald’s restaurants in Greater Indiana. Customers can purchase an insulated beverage sleeve, specifically designed to hold a 30-ounce McDonald’s beverage cup for $5. 

“RMHC helps keep families together near the medical care they need while they deal with a sick child, and we’re thrilled to provide this easy way to people to show their support while keeping their beverage cool this summer,” said local McDonald’s Owner/Operator Randy Shields. RMHC supports Ronald McDonald Houses across Greater Indiana who help families with ill or injured children stay together with home-cooked meals, private bedrooms, fully-equipped kitchens and laundry facilities near the medical care they need at leading hospitals.  It costs RMHC an average of $80 a night to house a family; In 2019, Indiana RMHC chapters served more than 46,000 children and families.

“McDonald’s was the founding mission partner of our charity when the first Ronald McDonald House opened in 1974 and they’ve provided vital support ever since,” said Ronald McDonald House Charites of Central Indiana Executive Director Karin Ogden. “We remain committed to serving families, despite the current challenges we face and appreciate the continued support of McDonald’s customers to help us fulfill our mission.”

Sleeves will be available at all McDonald’s restaurants in Greater Indiana while supplies last.
