McDonald’s Restaurants of Hawaii has supported Ronald McDonald House Charities of Hawaii (RMHC-Hawaii) since it opened its first House in 1987. RMHC-Hawaii is a private non-profit organization whose mission is to provide a home-away-from-home for seriously ill children and their families in Hawaii and the Pacific.
On March 27, RMHC-Hawaii is commemorating its 30th anniversary, and to celebrate, McDonald’s of Hawaii will donate 25 cents from every Shamrock Chocolate Madness product sold from February 21 to March 20 to the organization.
In 1974, McDonald’s ran a weeklong Shamrock Shake promotion with all proceeds going toward building the first Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia, making the Shamrock Shake the inaugural fundraiser of Ronald McDonald House Charities.
This year, McDonald’s has introduced a new line of seasonal McCafe beverages to their classic mint flavor Shamrock Shake lineup, combining mint and chocolate to the Shakes, Frappes, Mochas and Hot Chocolate. The five mint chocolate beverages in the Shamrock Chocolate Madness include:
1. ShamrockChocolateMadnessPicShamrock Shake – This is our classic, smooth and creamy mint-flavored shake topped with whipped toppings and a cherry.
2. Chocolate Shamrock Shake – The perfect mix of mint and chocolate.
3. Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappe – Bits of chocolate chips, a hint of coffee and mint flavor.
4. Shamrock Mocha – Espresso with mocha and mint flavor.
5. Shamrock Hot Chocolate – Hot chocolate with a hint of mint.
The Shamrock Chocolate Madness fundraiser is just one of many ways McDonald’s Restaurants of Hawaii helps RMHC-Hawaii raise funds for families. McDonald’s restaurants throughout Hawaii include RMHC donation boxes at both the front counters and in the drive-thru. Change collected from these boxes goes directly to the organization.
McDonald’s Restaurants of Hawaii has 82 restaurants and more than 5,200 employees in Hawaii, Guam and Saipan. In Hawaii alone, the company has 74 restaurants and more than 4,600 employees. McDonald’s total economic impact on the state yearly, directly and indirectly, is about $370 million in spending and nearly 12,000 jobs in the community.
