No Small Potatoes

McCain Foods announced they expanded their popular Free Fry Day fundraising event to include Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. In partnership with Homestead Co-op and Heritage Co-op in Brandon, the Free Fry Day event will raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities Manitoba, while also supporting Canadian potato farmers. On Thursday August 19th, nearly 20,000 bags of McCain French fries will be given away through contactless curbside pickup in both Portage and Brandon.

RMHC Keeping Families Close

RMHC Manitoba serves over 2000 families annually. When a child is seriously sick or injured, many families must leave their home, their communities and their support system in order to get the specialized care their child needs. RMHC Manitoba is now building a new Ronald McDonald House to help more families with sick or injured children than ever before. Be part of something special. Help plant the seeds of a legacy that will grow in our community for generations to come.
