Through our local McDonald's Owner/Operators, we are able to provide grants to other local non-profit organizations whose programs support the health and well-being of children and their families.
We not only try to improve the health and well being of children directly through our Ronald McDonald House program, but also through our Grants program. We are able to partner with other local nonprofits around the Tri-State to continue to support our mission through their established programs and projects.
Our Ronald McDonald House allows families to be close as their child is being cared for at any local medical facility. Thanks to the sponsorship of the local McDonald’s Ohio Valley Co-op, we are able to expand our reach through our Grants program. The Grants program allows our charity to impact the lives of children whose family may not necessarily have a need to stay at our Ronald McDonald House, but are still touched by our charity.
