Round Up campaign raises money for Columbus Ronald McDonald House

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

McDonald's restaurants across the valley are rounding up customers purchases to the next dollar to donate the extra change to sick children in our area.

Out-of-town families are able to live at the Ronald McDonald house free while their children are undergoing medical treatment.

The three-day campaign runs through Monday, July 7.

"We're asking patrons to round up their change or their food purchase to the next highest dollar and donate their change to the Ronald McDonald house," explained programs manager Beth Karrier. "All monies that are raised in the Columbus and valley area go to the Ronald McDonald House."

News Leader 9's Chuck Leonard was there, as well as Jason Dennis and Barbara Gauthier.

All the money raised will go to the local Ronald McDonald House. Last year, the Ronald McDonald House served nearly 400 people from east Alabama and west Georgia.
