This program is made possible by RMHC Maine’s mission partner, McDonald’s, and generous McDonald’s patrons. In each of the 61 McDonald’s located in Maine and the four located in northern New Hampshire, customers place their change into donation boxes supported by the McDonald’s Owner/Operators. A portion of this money directly benefits the RMHC Maine Grants Program to help support other non-profits that share RMHC Maine’s mission of healthy children, healthy families.
