Ronald McDonald House
April 29, 2019 - Our Edmonton office presented a cheque for $2,784 to the RMH Edmonton location. These funds were raised through our 'Jeans Days' fund as well as various fundraising initiatives throughout 2018. Christie Peters, Program Coordinator at RMH, also gave our group a tour of their facility to demonstrate how funds are used for anything from self-care programs to simply keeping the lights on. It was a very eye-opening, tremendously powerful experience, and we look forward to supporting them again in the future.
October 23, 2017 - Our Calgary office took some time to give back and prepare a delicious dinner for families staying at Ronald McDonald House.
December 14, 2015 - Last month, Peace Hills Insurance hosted the Re-Gift Card Program in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities® Northern Alberta (RMHCNA). We are pleased to report that our staff raised $475 through gift card donations, to help support the House and the families who stay there.
The Re-Gift Card Program is a third-party fundraising initiative endorsed by RMHCNA and coordinated by volunteers. Gift cards have become an increasingly popular way of gift giving. Most of us walk around with unused gift cards that will either never be used, or might even be thrown away – especially those with partial balances.
The Re-Gift Card Program offers a use for these cards, even those with very small remaining balances. We collect, determine the value of and sort these cards by business. Once a usable value is reached, the cards are redeemed for items and/or services related to the day-to-day operation of RMHCNA or for the comfort of the families staying there.
