We are proud to honor Capital One for their long-time and loyal support of RMHC Las Vegas and our families!
Capital One has provided financial support to the House and other programs in the form of annual grants for more than a decade, and they’ve participated in our annual Gala event as a sponsor for the past several years.
Employees also regularly volunteer for our Lunch Is On Us! program – they’re here up to seven times every month making sandwiches and packing happy healthy lunches to be delivered to families staying at their child’s bedside. Plus, employees are allowed to decorate lunch bags during downtime while at work. Volunteers also help out at our annual Food Drive and Runnin’ for the House 5K Fun Run. In 2019, Capital One employees volunteered 756 hours at the House!
Debbie Mitchell, Director of Operations at Capital One, has been a member of the RMHC Las Vegas board since 2016 and is a strong advocate for the House. Debbie is currently the Board Chair-Elect and a member of the Gala Committee, and was recently awarded the “Above & Beyond” award by the House.
A shining example of how Capital One goes out of their way to support the Ronald McDonald House is October 1, 2017. The day after that tragedy, employees got permission to stay as late as needed to help RMHC staff assemble and distribute more than 1,000 sack lunches to families at local hospitals.
For everything they do to support our families, we’re proud to name Capital One as our Business Benefactor for the month for September!
