Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada
WestJet gives Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Canada wings. Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) of Canada and WestJet announced a new initiative in 2008 whereby WestJet will donate flights to the charity, which is dedicated to helping children with serious illnesses or disabilities and their families lead happier and healthier lives.
Through the airline's community investment program, WestJet Cares for Kids, WestJet will donate flights to support RMHC families, fundraising and administration.
Ronald McDonald House Charities ® (RMHC®) of Canada is a national children's charity dedicated to helping kids and supporting families across Canada. RMHC knows that when a child faces serious illness or disability they face it better as a family, and they are dedicated to helping kids and supporting families when they need us most. RMHC achieves this by supporting each Canadian Ronald McDonald House®, the Ronald McDonald Family Room® Program and many other children's charities across Canada.
Since its inception in 1982, RMHC has awarded over 2,100 grants totaling over $58 million to children's charities across Canada. These grants have helped benefit thousands of children and families in more than 600 communities.
