Ronald McDonald House's Roots In McDonald's Shamrock Shake

In honoring the legacy of Shamrock Shake’s integral role in the building of the first Ronald McDonald House, McDonald’s in the DMV will donate $.25 from every McCafé Shamrock Chocolate beverage sold from March 11-17 to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Washington, DC.
