Little Rock, Arkansas January 26, 2007 -- Dillard's, Inc. is proud to announce that it will again make a significant contribution of approximately $95,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC®). This donation was made possible through the sale of a limited edition gift set with a 27-exposure single-use camera and a beautiful "Memories are Made of This..." photo album. The limited edition gift set was produced to be sold in 330 Dillard's stores and online during the 2006 holiday season. Profits from those sales were earmarked to benefit Ronald McDonald Houses serving local communities.
With this year's contribution, Dillard's has now donated almost $ 3.8 million to Ronald McDonald Houses over the past 13 years. Denise Mahaffy, Vice President of Advertising for Dillard's, said, "We are once again so grateful to be a part of this organization that touches so many children and their families year round."
Marty Coyne, Vice-President of Ronald McDonald House Charities, said, "We thank Dillard's for the generous support they have shown us for the past 13 years. Dillard's has been, and continues to be, a key corporate partner aiding us in our mission to better the lives of children and their families"
