The Automotive Aftermarket division of The Gates Corp. has raised $160,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).
The Gates community came together to exceed initial fundraising goals through two different program components. Gates “Building Blocks” kits, which contained items to help build business at professional service centers in the U.S. and Canada, were sold through Gates exclusive partners and a website was available for individual donations. In addition, Gates employees aided in the success of this program by volunteering their time.
“Every year, RMHC helps nearly 9 million families, facing the weight of illness, stay together,” said Pam Whitaker, executive director, Denver Ronald McDonald House. “It is through the generosity of partners like The Gates Corp. that we are able to continue providing stability and vital resources to children in need.”
