Tide Commits to $400K Donation to Ronald McDonald House Charities® Canada
Tide has partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC) Canada, a nonprofit supporting families of sick children who often have to travel to access the care they need at specialty pediatric hospitals. Despite its efforts, RMHC estimates it can only serve 1 in 5 families seeking its assistance, primarily because of limited space. Tide plans to expand its Loads of Hope initiative and pledges $400,000 to the charity’s Canadian branch over the next two years to support RHMC’s ability to help more families, specifically to make them more comfortable and enhance laundry programs at Ronald McDonald House and Family Room locations across Canada. Tide announced the partnership just as the company celebrated National Laundry Day on April 15, 2024.
“The Tide Loads of Hope program began by providing renewed hope and optimism through the basic comfort of clean clothing following a natural disaster,” said Noam Pik, Senior Vice President Commercial Operations P&G Fabric Care Canada. “Similarly, families’ lives are upended in an instant when caring for a seriously ill child. With Tide’s goal of having every load of laundry do a load of good, we are stepping up by supporting laundry programming at RMHC across Canada.”
“With 2 out of 3 Canadian families living outside a city with a children’s hospital, families are forced to travel to access medical care if their child becomes seriously ill or injured, often with just the clothes on their backs,” said Kate Horton, RMHC Canada President & CEO. “With Tide’s generous donation, families will continue to have access to comforts of home, keeping everything from their clothes to their child’s cherished stuffed animal clean, so they can focus on what matters most.”
