Last Friday was #NationalSuperheroDay and our friends at @mcdonalds made it extra special for children and families staying at the House.

Additionally, McDonald’s restaurants across Manhattan served up Superhero Spicy Chicken McNuggets, with 15% of proceeds from April 28-30 coming back to Ronald McDonald House New York. We extend our gratitude to Manhattan McDonald’s Owner/Operators for raising awareness of Ronald McDonald House New York and inspiring New Yorkers to be champions for our mission.
