The Ronald McDonald Houses of Dallas and Fort Worth are collaborating on a fundraiser called “Share the Love” on June 22. They are asking businesses, organizations, groups and individuals to purchase a “Share the Love” t-shirt for $15, and wear the shirts on “Share the Love Day, June 22, to show their support for these Ronald McDonald Houses.
Jill Cumnock, CEO of Ronald McDonald House of Dallas, said, “We are teaming up with businesses, employees and residents to tell our communities that we are part of something bigger than ourselves. When families stay at the Dallas or Fort Worth Houses, they are asked to contribute $15 a night; however, no family is turned away due to the inability to pay. So when you purchase a t-shirt, you are providing a night for a family with a sick or injured child.”
To place a t-shirt order, go to http://www.rmhdallas.org/how-you-can-help/share-the-love/ to download an order form, fill it out, and return it along with your payment to: Ronald McDonald House of Dallas, 4707 Bengal St. Dallas, TX 75235.
