Ronald McDonald House
Alpha Delta Pi is proud of its long-standing relationship with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). The mission of RMHC is to create and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children. RMHC positively impacts children’s lives and we are exctied to donate to such a worth-while cause. Today there are more than 300 Ronald McDonald Houses in 52 countries helping families with seriously ill or injured children by offering them a comfortable, temporary residence with medical assistance.
Some facts about RMH-CH are that they have been open since 1988, there are 53 guest rooms, 25% of patients DO stay at the house and home cooked meals are served every night.
Throughout the year, our chapter members visit the nearby RMH and organize numerous events to gain community support and awareness. We are excited to announce our pledge to donate to the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill’s new wing with a room deticated to our chapter.
We hold two Lion Share Events throughout the year. This year our chapter hosted a Swing N' Wing philanthropy event, where all our proceeds went to RMH. At this event, all different types of wing flavors were provided for dinner and also a dumpster car was available to smash and swing.
The second event held was our annual Mac N' Cheese night. This year we had a Mardi Gras theme full of decorations and Mac n' cheese toppings. This philanthropy event is always so fun and rewarding knowing that our money raised is going to a great organization. This past year, we have helped raise over $10,300 for RMH through our Mac n' Cheese night and Swings N' Wings event!
