03 Mar Dillard’s Stores Raise More than $20,000 for Local Ronald McDonald Houses
ATLANTA, March 3, 2016 – The eighth annual Dillard’s Southern Living Cookbook fundraiser for Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities (ARMHC) raised more than $20,000 to benefit families staying at Atlanta’s two Ronald McDonald Houses. Cookbooks were sold for $10 at participating Atlanta Dillard’s stores: Arbor Place Mall, Atlantic Station, The Forum at Ashley Park, Mall of Georgia, The Mall at Stonecrest, Northpoint Mall and Perimeter Mall.
In Atlanta, Dillard’s has contributed more than $240,000 to ARMHC. “Dillard’s continued support and generosity allows us to provide the best possible care and accommodations for families who must travel to Atlanta for their child’s medical care,” explains Beth Howell, President & CEO of ARMHC. Dillard’s support of Ronald McDonald House Charities began in 1994. Since then, the company has donated more than $12.3 million to Ronald McDonald House Chapters across the country.
About Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities (ARMHC)
Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities (ARMHC) is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to nurturing the health and well-being of children and families. The two Atlanta Houses have provided a “home-away-from-home” to more than 46,000 families since the first Atlanta House opened in 1979.
At the Ronald McDonald House, families can enjoy many of the comforts of home, receive nutritious meals prepared and served by volunteers and obtain emotional support through contact with other families experiencing similar situations. No family is turned away if they cannot afford the small $20 requested contribution and many of these families stay at one of our Houses for weeks, and sometimes months, while their children receive medical treatment.
