Service and Philanthropy

Ronald McDonald House Charities®(RMHC®)

Since 1979, Alpha Delta Pi has been committed to serving Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). Over the course of our partnership, Alpha Delta Pi has contributed more than $19 million to this worthwhile cause. Local RMHC Chapters operate Ronald McDonald House®, Ronald McDonald Care Mobile®, and Ronald McDonald Family Room® programs in local communities.

Today, more than 375 Ronald McDonald Houses in 62 countries help keep families with seriously ill or injured children together when they need it most by offering them a comfortable, temporary residence in close proximity to a medical facility. In addition to donating money to this worthwhile cause, many Alpha Delta Pi collegiate chapters and alumnae associations spend their time and energy volunteering at these Houses. For more information about Ronald McDonald House Charities, please visit the RMHC website at www.rmhc.org.
