Dillards, Inc. is releasing an exclusive new Southern Living Christmas Cookbook as part of its 28th annual fundraiser, according to Arkansas Money and Politics. Proceeds from the sales will benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), which provides housing to families where their children are receiving critical medical care. Last year, Dillards raised $180,000 through sale of the cookbooks, bringing their total donations to RMHC to an incredible $15.3 million.
The Southern Living Christmas Cookbook will feature over 100 recipes with more than 125 photographs to help customers with their holiday preparations. According to Senior Vice President Denise Mahaffy, Dillards’ relationship with RMHC gives them an “enormous sense of pride,” adding that they are looking forward to another successful year fundraising for the charity. Praising the fundraiser with gratitude, Joanna Sabato, Chief Marketing and Development Officer at RMHC shared, “we’re incredibly grateful for Dillard’s generous donation, so we can continue to help families feel at home, even when they can’t be.”
Ronald McDonald House Charities supports families as a sick child receives medical treatment. RMHC is committed to providing families all around the world with the care and resources they need. Through their programs and services, RMHC has saved families over $443 million dollars in hotel and meal expenses, according to their website.
With the purchase of a Southern Living Christmas Cookbook from Dillards, customers are not only receiving tons of delicious recipes, they are giving back to their communities by helping families in need of love, care, and support. This fundraiser is one that gives hope to all as people embrace the season of giving by thinking of others and donating to a cause that brings comfort and care to families seeking help through this remarkable charity.
