On Tuesday morning June 18, 2013, a team from Jackson Hewitt® presented a donation check to Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) at their global headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois. The donation resulted from a special tax season campaign that started in January 2013. For every customer who showed a special coupon at the time of tax preparation at a local office, Jackson Hewitt donated $3 to the charity. Customers found out about the promotion through coupons distributed at their local participating McDonalds® restaurants, on Facebook® and Twitter®.
"We believe in the work RMHC is doing to make a difference in the lives of children and their families both here in the USA and around the world" said Debra Small, Senior Director of Retail Marketing. "Our Jackson Hewitt franchisees support the effort nationally through donations and locally through fundraising and volunteering at local RMHC Chapters and Ronald McDonald Houses."
"We have worked closely with Jackson Hewitt for several years to raise funds that support our core family-centered programs the Ronald McDonald House®, Ronald McDonald Family Room® and Ronald McDonald Care Mobile®," said Greg Borkowski, Manager of Development for RMHC. "The support we receive from Jackson Hewitt helps us keep families together so their children can heal faster, and that is something we are very grateful for."
Looks like this campaign was good for everyone!
