‘1-Day in the Community’
1-day.co.nz has partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) with the aim of helping to provide stability and resources to families when their child is receiving medical treatment.
Ronald McDonald House® provides free accommodation and support services to over 3500 families each year ensuring they are better placed to cope and help their children heal.
More than just a place to sleep, these facilities seek to alleviate the emotional, practical and financial burdens a family can face so that they can focus on the most important things – their child’s recovery.
Through their efforts and the generosity of their customers, 1-day.co.nz has contributed $15,000 to the donation of Christmas toys and gifts for all families staying in a Ronald McDonald House®. The team at 1-day also volunteered at the Auckland House to cook a festive Christmas feast allowing families to have a night off cooking their own meals to spend this special time with loved ones. Santa added Christmas cheer too, with a visit on the night and he handed out 1-day presents to the children. Over 1,000 gifts were donated nationwide to all Ronald McDonald Houses for children and their families.
There will be a number of opportunities to assist Ronald McDonald House Charities in the coming year – we are very excited about being able to help raise awareness of such a worthy cause.
