At Macca’s we’re proud to play an active role in neighbourhoods all over Australia. One of the ways we do this is by supporting groups and charities that are important to our customers or that make a difference to the lives of our fellow Australians.
At the heart of our community commitment is Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). RMHC is one of Australia’s major children’s charities and helps thousands of seriously ill children and their families every year.
To raise funds for RMHC, McHappy Day is held annually and everyone in the McDonald’s business – franchisees, crew, managers, head office staff and suppliers – participates in some way.
