The Dwyer Group Announces $125,000 National Commitment to Ronald McDonald House Charities Across Five Franchise Brands

March 18, 2010

Five franchise service brands with The Dwyer Group, including the Glass Doctor, have joined together to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities with a national commitment of $125,000.

"Our franchise brands know what it means to be of service so that customers can have peace of mind and focus on more important things," says Dina Dwyer-Owens, CEO and chairwoman of The Dwyer Group. "That is why supporting the Ronald McDonald House Charities is a perfect fit to extend that message in another meaningful way."

Ronald McDonald House Charities was established in 1984 in memory of McDonald's founder and franchise icon Ray Kroc. The program includes a network of homes that offer rooms for families of pediatric patients under 21 years old. The houses are located around the world and are funded by community support, offering families a way to stay close to the hospital where their child is being treated.

In addition to the national commitment, Dwyer Group officials say that franchisees will look for ways to get involved on a local level with the Ronald McDonald House in their own communities.
