McCafé Pledges up to $100,000 in Support of Families with Sick Children
McCafé’s annual campaign in support of RMHC is on a mission to enable access to Canada’s paediatric healthcare system for families who must travel to access medical treatment for their sick child. Throughout the month of December, $1 from the purchase of any McCafé at-home coffee product sold in participating retailers and online at Keurig.ca/McCafé will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Canada up to $100,000.
Since 2019, McCafé has raised $425,000 for RMHC Canada through the McCafé at-home coffee donation campaigns. This year’s donation could facilitate up to 595 stays for families in need.
“With more than two-thirds of Canadian families living outside cities with a specialized children’s hospital, the need for RMHC is great and growing,” says Kate Horton, CEO, RMHC Canada. “Our programs support out-of-town families with medical needs by providing them with accommodations, meals, and everyday comforts like a fresh cup of coffee. We’re incredibly grateful to our McCafé and Keurig Dr Pepper Canada partners for their continued support of RMHC across Canada and the families we’re honoured to serve.”
Since 1981, RMHC across Canada has supported more than 450,000 families – providing them with the comforts of home just steps away from their sick child in hospital. More than a place to stay, RMHC cares for the physical and emotional well-being of families by providing home-cooked meals, laundry services, mental health and wellness programming, and a community of support. Through 34 programs from coast to coast to coast, RMHC is dedicated to taking care of families, so families can focus on what matters most – caring for their sick child.
“We believe strongly in the RMHC mission of keeping families close together and caring for their everyday needs during difficult times,” said Judy Lin, Senior Brand Manager for the McCafé Retail Portfolio at Keurig Dr Pepper Canada. “This winter season, we invite all Canadians to Share a Cup of Love. There’s simply no better gift than supporting togetherness for families when they need it the most.”
