LG Electronics Australia is extremely proud to partner with Ronald McDonald House Charities in an effort to help keep Australian families with seriously ill or injured children more comfortable while supporting their child's treatment.
Ronald McDonald House Charities has been supporting Australian families travelling long distances for the treatment of their child’s serious illness or injury for over 40 years. The cornerstone of their work are the 18 Ronald McDonald Houses across Australia supporting accommodation needs and creating a home away from home for families steps away from the hospital. Rather than spending the night in a hospital waiting room, family members can stay in the comfort at a Ronald McDonald House and receive support from staff, volunteers and other families that are sharing similar experiences.
LG Electronics Australia is committed to helping Aussie families rediscover the good in their everyday life's, especially when times are tough. LG will donate more than $260,000 in home appliances, entertainment products and air-conditioning systems to refurbish Ronald McDonald Houses across Australia, as well as provide volunteer program support, cash donations, and fundraising activity. LG products will be used to improve facilities such as private family rooms, kitchens, laundries, lounges, quiet rooms and play areas, which are expected to help with the comfort and care of around 60,000 families across the country next year.

The RMHC Australia partnership is part of LG Electronics Australia's broader community program. This has included the LG Local Legends program which has recognised the efforts of many volunteers and charity organisations since its launch in May 2020. LG has also provided more than $1 million in the past two years to support those in need - including NSW Floods and national bushfire recovery programs, and welfare organisations such as WIRES.
LG is passionate about helping those in the community and is proud to partner with RMHC. Working with RMHC enables us to use our products to help just over ten thousand families, whilst providing much needed funding and support for the organisation.
Gemma Lemieux, Marketing Director, LG Electronics Australia
The partnership will put LG products and funds to work for the benefit of our families. Our success is rightly measured by the level of outstanding care we provide our families. The work with LG will deliver more comfortable experiences for thousands of Australian families every year.
