LG ELECTRONICS AND RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES FORM NEW PARTNERSHIP IN CANADA

Organizations to recognize local Community Heroes that create Life’s Good Moments for families that stay at RMHC across Canada every day

TORONTO, May 11, 2022 /CNW/ – To further deliver LG’s “Life’s Good” brand vision, LG Electronics Canada (LG) is proud to announce its corporate partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Canada to shine a light on the power of the human spirit and the many ways that individuals continue to do good for others who are most in need in their communities.

The partnership with RMHC extends LG’s North American Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Experience Happiness initiative, and complements the company’s global environmental, social, and governance (ESG) priorities to focus on Canadian youth and strengthen the capabilities of future generations.

The partnership will create meaningful opportunities to connect, communicate, and celebrate the staff and volunteers within RMHC’s 33 programs across the country, who help families by providing the comforts of home when they must travel far for the medical care their child needs.

“We truly value the work that RMHC is doing to support families with children in need of medical help across our communities every year by providing them with a safe home to stay,” explains Jaeseung Kim, President and CEO, LG Electronics Canada. “Our goal is to connect with the caregivers and volunteers in Ronald McDonald Houses and recognize the life’s good moments they are creating for these families, wherever they are and whoever they’re with.”

All 16 Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada will have access to a Community Heroes grant provided by LG to support their immediate local needs. LG’s support will also enable 238 overnight stays at Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada for families caring for a sick child.

“We are so grateful to LG for joining us in our shared mission to enable access to pediatric healthcare for families with sick children,” adds Leslie HedersonDirector of National Partnerships

LG’s #LifesGoodMoment campaign celebrates every day Community Heroes and recognizes the many ways that individuals create moments to make life good for those in need while acknowledging the importance of giving back to the community.
