Ronald McDonald House
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 $5.4 million to this worthwhile cause. RMHC supports Ronald McDonald Houses, Care Mobiles, and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms in local communities and also funds grants to other nonprofit organizations whose programs focus on children in need.
Today, more than 300 Ronald McDonald Houses in 52 countries help keep families with seriously ill or injured children together when they need it most by offering them a comfortable, temporary residence in 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. Last year our members contributed more than 30,000 service hours to the Ronald McDonald Houses and more than 23,000 hours to other service opportunities.
Theta Tau Chapter is very actively involved with our Ronald McDonald House here in Philadelphia! We have been Breakfast Buddies and cooked breakfast for the kids, done arts and crafts with them, and hosted fundraisers for RMHC on campus such as our Lion's Share Challenge, Pie-a-President.
