Gahanna McDonald’s takes 3rd Place in “Show Your Love for RMHC” McDonald’s Restaurant Competition

By Rick Shepherd, Communications Manager, RMHC of Central OH

Congratulations to the “bronze medalist” in the “Show Your Love for RMHC” competition between area McDonald’s restaurants! Owner/Operator Matt Harper’s team took third place at his Hamilton Road location in our February Round-Up contest! The crew at this restaurant encouraged more than 30% of all their customers to Round-Up for Ronald McDonald House Charities in one day – Valentine’s Day! The top 5 stores with the largest percentage of Round-Up transactions during the contest are being shown some LOVE and are being spotlighted by RMHC of Central Ohio through various media.

Central Ohio McDonald’s restaurants and their customers have been amazing supporters of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio through the Round-Up campaign. When crews at these McDonald’s are asking their customers if they want to Round-Up for RMHC to the nearest dollar, they’re helping families stay close to their children in Columbus hospitals. We have numerous Crew members throughout our 125 restaurants in Central Ohio who have stayed at the House and they are our biggest advocates.
