Fix Network has pledged its support to Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada (RMHC Canada) by launching its Season of Giving initiative to help families.
Fix Network’s Canada-wide initiative will help support RMHC’s 34 programs across the country that provide families with a home to stay together, while their sick child is being treated at a nearby hospital, according to the company. Last year, RMHC’s programs helped over 26,000 families stay close to their sick child and the care they need.
Due to COVID-19, RMHC is experiencing a time of great need across Canada, with revenue declines of up to 60%. Fix Network is encouraging its franchise partners and staff to support the initiative and donate.
“This year has been challenging for all of us, and especially for families with a sick child,” said Somer Mullins, Fix Network Canada marketing and communications national director. “This Season of Giving, I am excited to see our network come together to show support for families in our communities, now more than ever.”
Since 2016, Fix Network, its employees and strategic partners have contributed more than $250,000 over the past three years to RMHC Canada. Donors can contribute through online donations. To kickstart the initiative, Fix Network will donate $10,000.
“We are truly grateful for the generosity of Fix Network, its franchise partners and staff during this time of great need,” said Leslie Hederson, National Partnerships Director, RMHC Canada. “This initiative will provide much needed funding to help RMHC continue to deliver its core mission of providing meals, accommodations and support for families staying at Ronald McDonald Ronald McDonald Houses and Family Rooms across Canada.”
