Dillard's cookbook nets more than $850K for RMHC


Dillard’s Inc. is giving more than $850,000 to local Chapters of Ronald McDonald House Charities after selling its exclusive Southern Living Christmas Cookbook.

For the eighth time, Dillard’s offered a special custom edition of the Southern Living Christmas Cookbook to benefit RMHC. This exclusive, 288-page hardbound cookbook is filled with fabulous holiday recipes, color photos, menus, decorating tips and entertaining ideas.

With this year’s contribution, Dillard’s has donated more than $13.1 million since 1994 to local RMHC Chapters to support the Ronald McDonald House® program.

"Over the past 22 years, Dillard's has developed a strong and lasting bond with our local RMHC Chapters,” said Denise Mahaffy, senior vice president. “The work they do every day to bring comfort to children and families inspires us and makes the sale of the cookbooks an enormous source of pride and satisfaction.”

Ronald McDonald Houses play a vital role for families with critically ill children by providing a “home-away-from-home” that helps keep families close to their sick children and balance the need for privacy and social support during an unimaginable time. Families staying at a House are able to spend more time with their hospitalized children, interact with clinical care providers and participate in decisions and provisions.

“The contributions made by Dillard’s and Dillard’s customers through the purchase of the Southern Living cookbook will help RMHC keep families close while their child is undergoing medical treatment far from home,” said Sheila Musolino, president and CEO, RMHC. “Over the past 22 years, Dillard’s support has helped RMHC keep millions of children and families close to the care and resources they need.”
