WHAT WE DO
Help families with a sick child stay together and near the medical care needed
Dillard’s Exclusive Southern Living Christmas Cookbook benefits Ronald McDonald House Charities®
OKLAHOMA CITY (February 5, 2018) – From the sale of the Southern Living Christmas Cookbook in 2017, Dillard’s raised $11,459 for Ronald McDonald House Charities® Oklahoma City (RMHC-OKC) and their mission to keep families of sick children close to each other and the medical care they need.
“RMHC is such a great charity,” said Eddie Carter, Dillard’s Store Manager. “You can’t find a better or more responsible nonprofit to support. For me personally, I’ve seen firsthand the wonderful work RMHC does because my son has been treated by Children’s Hospitals all around the country, and no matter where we are the Ronald McDonald House has always supported my family and all families.”
For the past 10 years, the Dillard’s in Oklahoma has donated over $200,000 to RMHC-OKC to help support families while their child was in the hospital, and this year Dillard’s in Oklahoma was ranked third in the country for cookbook sales.
“We can’t thank Dillard’s and their customers enough for their continued support which helps keep our services free for families,” said Susan Adams, RMHC-OKC President and CEO. “When families walk through our doors, they are stressed and afraid for their child who is in the hospital. We help them cope by providing a place to stay and comforting meals, all while being steps away from their child’s bedside.”
In the past 24 years, Dillard’s has raised more than $14.1 million for RMHC Chapters across the country as a result of the annual holiday fundraisers.
