Help Us to Help Them: Collecting for the Ronald McDonald House of Central Pennsylvania

November 22nd, 2016

CJ's Tire & Automotive is changing more than tires by making it our mission to give back to the local communities in which we do business. So far this year, we've collected donations for local food banks, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, PA Breast Cancer Coalition, and local Animal Shelters. Our next way of giving back? We're raising money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central Pennsylvania.

The mission of the Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central PA is to serve children and their families by providing compassionate and accessible support through programs and healthcare partnerships. They strive to keep children and their families together, by providing no-charge, temporary housing to out-of-town families of children who are being treated at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital. They also provide the Ronald McDonald Family Room® which is located within the Penn State M.S. Hershey Medical Center and offers a comfortable setting for families of pediatric patients. This area then converts into a sleep space for families who cannot leave their children for any reason.

 

 

Need more reasons for why we chose to gather donations for the Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central PA? Here's some statistics from 2015.

The average family visited the Ronald McDonald House in Hershey 1.53 times for a total of 1,221 visits. They stayed with them for an average of 9-10 nights, with a total cost of each night (with no charge to the families of course) being $86.84. The 35 bedrooms found at the Ronald McDonald House in Hershey were occupied an average of 90% of the time. Last year, 796 families were served and 756 of them were Pennsylvania residents.

We will be collecting monetary donations at our 14 convenient CJ's Tire & Automotive locations. You can either use our donation box or add a donation to your invoice. You can also donate at this link.
