“The holiday season is a critical time to raise funds to keep local Ronald McDonald Houses operating for the families and children who need them,” said Katherine Estes Billmeier, CEO for RMHC of Alabama. “We are so grateful for the continued support we receive from McDonald’s restaurants, owner/operators and customers, allowing us to continue to provide hope and support for families that are in a time of crisis.”

The crew members at the top 20 restaurants were recognized for their hard work in raising more than $311,000 in 2022 through the Round-Up for RMHC fundraiser. The generosity of local Alabama communities helped raise more than $72,000 in Oxford; more than $101,000 at three Anniston restaurants; and more than $64,000 at three Birmingham restaurants.

“We want to sincerely thank our generous McDonald’s customers for their support of RMHCA,” shared owner/operator Jamie Black of Black Family Restaurants.

“As local small business owners, McDonald’s franchisees are committed to giving back to the communities in which we operate.  We, our managers, and crew feel privileged to champion the incredible work of RMHCA,” said another local owner/operator Nick Valluzzo of The Valluzzo Companies and RMHC of Alabama Board Member.
