Sprockets has donated $2,000 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities on behalf of the National Owners Association (NOA) to help families receive the care they deserve.

About Ronald McDonald House Charities
Families shouldn’t have to go through uncertain times without proper care. Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) aims to give families around the world a place to stay while receiving medical treatment as well as resources they need to feel safe and comfortable. Several RMHC houses also offer recreational activities, educational programs, sibling-support services, art and music therapy, and gardening opportunities. According to the RMHC website, “Research shows that patients whose families stayed at the Ronald McDonald Houses are the sickest, traveled the farthest distances, and spent the longest time in the hospital.”
How Our Donation Will Help Families
Our RMHC global donation will help provide “essential support and resources to our 260 RMHC organizations and families around the world when they need it most.” To date, RMHC has saved families more than $443 million on meals, hotel, medical, and other related expenses. There are Ronald McDonald Houses in 62 countries with a combined total of 1.4 million overnight stays.
Our Shared Values
Sprockets shares RMHC’s core values, like equality, kindness, and compassion. We believe everyone deserves an equal opportunity for employment and want to transform the traditional hiring process – often full of bias – to a more equitable one. In the words of our CEO and Co-Founder, AJ Richichi, “We want to give everyone a fair shake, regardless of where they are from and what they look like.” Like a relay athlete or a sprocket in a machine, the right employee joins colleagues to drive an organization forward in efficiency and harmony.
We look forward to working together – with both RMHC and NOA – as we build a better future for owners, hourly workers, and our communities.
