By Rick Shepherd, Communications Manager, RMHC of Central Ohio

Congratulations to the fourth-place winner in the “Show Your Love for RMHC” competition between area McDonald’s restaurants! The Riverside Drive McDonald’s location in Upper Arlington won this February Round-Up contest! The crew at this restaurant encouraged nearly 30% of all their customers to Round-Up for Ronald McDonald House Charities in one day – Valentine’s Day. This restaurant came in just one Percentage point behind the third-place winner, the McDonald’s restaurant in Gahanna. 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. Click the image below to hear from a couple of the crew members at this restaurant, including a manager who stayed at the Ronald McDonald House.

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.
