USA: Ronald McDonald house charities canisters nationwide earmarked for Red Cross
In light of last Tuesday's tragedy in New York City, McDonald's Restaurants nationwide are responding with assistance to the humanitarian and relief efforts. Beginning Friday, September 14, 2001, and continuing for a month, all customer donations received through the Ronald McDonald House Charities® restaurant canister program will be donated to the American Red Cross to assist in this national emergency. Every cent put into these canisters -- both in the restaurants and in drive-thrus -- will be given to the American Red Cross. Furthermore, McDonald's Corporation is contributing $1 million to the relief efforts, and Ronald McDonald House Charities is matching it with its own $1 million contribution above and beyond the canister donations.
