Reliance Donates $1 Million to Ronald McDonald House

By on

Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co., Scottsdale, Ariz., donated $1 million to Ronald McDonald House Charities at the annual Reliance Managers' Meeting March 9.

Ronald McDonald House Charities serves millions of children and their families every year, helping provide access to healthcare for families who must travel far from home for their child's care, said RMHC Global President and CEO Katie Fitzgerald. "We're incredibly grateful for Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co.'s generous donation that will undoubtedly help impact the health and well-being of children and families around the world."

"Reliance believes in the incredible work that is being done by Ronald McDonald House Charities and is excited to provide increased financial and volunteer support to RMHC. It was important to us that our first major contribution as part of the expanded Reliance Cares program goes to an organization that supports many of the local communities where we live and work," said Reliance Steel & Aluminum President and CEO Karla Lewis.

The $1 million donation, made on behalf of all employees across the Reliance Family of Companies, commemorated a significant expansion of the Reliance Cares program, initially launched in 2017 as an employee-supported and company-matched internal emergency assistance fund. Moving forward, Reliance Cares will take on a bigger mission as Reliance's Corporate Social Responsibility program.

This ongoing partnership with RMHC will positively impact the lives of families with sick children, as well as provide Reliance employees with in-person and virtual engagement opportunities to make a personal connection with the mission of RMHC in the 12 countries and 40 U.S. states in which Reliance operates.
