If life couldn’t get much better, I’m here to tell you that National French Fry Day is July 13 — yes, there really is such a thing!
Make sure you stop by McDonald’s to celebrate the occasion! And if you can’t get out that day? McDonald’s will offer customers one free medium fry with each order placed through Uber Eats. Fry-lovers will get to enjoy McDonald’s classic, crispy fries without having to leave home!
In addition to serving up these world-famous fries, McDonald’s also serves its local communities through the Pennies per Pound program – which benefits Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Pounds For Pennies
Did you know that for every pound of French fries sold, McDonald’s donates one cent to local Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC)?
Thank you to McDonalds of North Texas for giving back to our community and for the partnership of this sponsored post.
But wait! We all know that everything is bigger in Texas, so it might not be a shock when I tell you that McDonald’s of Greater North Texas actually donates two cents for every pound of fries sold at their restaurants to local Ronald McDonald Houses of Dallas and Fort Worth. *Funds allocated equally between both chapters.
Since 2016, McDonald’s of North Texas has given $1.2M to local RMHC Chapters – providing families with the support and resources they need while their children are receiving treatment in local hospitals or health facilities.
The local Chapters of RMHC have been helping millions of families with sick children find comfort and support when they need it most. Their programs,
tailored to meet the urgent needs of each community, can now be found in more than 64 countries and regions across the globe.
The Dallas house has approximately 60,000 square feet, and offers 52 private bedrooms and six transplant apartments. In between hospital visits, residents have access to playrooms for kids of all ages and interests, a library, media room, craft room, chapel, meditation garden, and outdoor play areas. Two large communal kitchens and dining room provide opportunities for the families to share the evening meal, which is provided three times a day by community volunteers, or available for them to prepare their own food if they choose.
Hundreds of volunteers support RMHD’s annual operations and fundraising activities by serving families at the House, preparing meals, and hosting organized activities. The Fort Worth house can service up to 57 families a night. The House includes three complete kitchen areas, two dining rooms, three family rooms, a playroom, a game room, a meditation room, complete with books and journals, and an enclosed courtyard. Families staying at the Fort Worth Ronald McDonald House (RMHFW) are provided with home cooked meals prepared by local volunteers. At the Fort Worth location, families will have the opportunity to partake in Recreational activities, including tickets to various professional sports teams on a limited basis,
game nights and movie nights. RMHFW offers a home away from home experience without the stress of cleaning, cooking dinner or buying groceries.
