Hyundai Help for Kids, when we need it the most
Since 2014, Hyundai Help for Kids, supported by the Hyundai Dealer Network has provided over $3 million worth of support to Ronald McDonald House Charities. With the help of their Hyundai Dealers and customers, a percentage of funds from every vehicle sale contributed towards the Hyundai Help for Kids Program. Their support ranges from cash donations, 13 vehicles in kind and money can’t buy experiences for our families. In 2018, Hyundai Help for Kids received the prestigious RMHC Supporter Heart Award & received recognition as a Platinum Partner for their passionate and dedicated contribution to our Charity.
Asaleo Care & Sorbent Toilet Paper Company give back to families in need
Launched in 1952, Sorbent is one of the best-known and loved brands of toilet tissue in Australia. In 2018, Asaleo Care a supporter of RMHC, created a Partnership whereby a percentage of each sale of Sorbent toilet tissue through Woolworths, Coles, IGA and independent outlets were donated back to RMHC in the form of a cash donation.
