BLAINVILLE (Quebec), January 19, 2021: Fix Network, the largest automotive aftermarket network in Canada, along with its staff and strategic partners, have raised $19,970 to support Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada® (RMHC® Canada) and its programs aimed at helping families with sick children.
All through December 2020, Fix Network’s Canada-wide initiative, called “Season of Giving”, encouraged its strategic partners and staff to donate generously to RMHC’s 34 programs across Canada that provide support for families, while their sick child is being treated at a nearby hospital.
This year, due to restrictions brought on by COVID-19, Fix Network could not hold special outreach events or fundraisers to support its annual initiative. Despite these challenges, the organization remained determined to support its charity of choice, RMHC Canada, and its families.
Somer Mullins, National Director for Marketing and Communications for Fix Network Canada, says: “It’s great to see the Network come together as a family and stand united with RMHC Canada in its greatest time of need. The season is all about caring and sharing, and we hope that our contribution can make a difference to these families.”
Since 2016, Fix Network, its employees and strategic partners have been closely associated with RMHC Canada, contributing more than $250,000 over the past three years.
“We are incredibly thankful to the entire Fix Network family for their continued commitment and passion in support of RMHC families and our mission at a time when the need is so great,” said Leslie Hederson, National Partnerships Director, RMHC Canada. “As a result of COVID-19, RMHC has experienced revenue declines of up to 60% and this donation will provide essential support for families with a sick child during a difficult time in their lives.”

ABOUT Ronald McDonald House Charities® Canada (RMHC® CANADA)
Au Canada, 65 % des familles vivent à l’extérieur des villes dotées d’un hôpital pour enfants, et elles doivent se déplacer pour obtenir des traitements médicaux si leur enfant est gravement malade. Par ses programmes, le réseau de l’OMRM du Canada contribue à garder chaque année plus de 26 000 familles au chevet de leur enfant malade et à leur fournir l’aide dont elles ont besoin. Les 16 Manoirs Ronald McDonald offrent un deuxième chez-soi aux familles pendant que leur enfant malade est traité dans un hôpital à proximité. Les 17 Salles familiales Ronald McDonald, de leur côté, donnent aux familles une oasis de paix et de détente dans l’enceinte même de l’hôpital. La Clinique mobile Ronald McDonald fournit des soins médicaux de base dans les collectivités de l’Alberta où ces soins ne sont pas facilement accessibles.
