Sacramento Republic FC are encouraging fans to give back throughout the holiday season. Throughout November, fans are encouraged to give a hand to families in need by purchasing a paper hand available in $1, $3 or $5 denominations at participating McDonald’s restaurants throughout the Northern California region.
Each donation will go towards supporting local Ronald McDonald House Charities. Ronald McDonald Houses provide family-centered programs that serve as a “home away from home” for families with sick children to stay together, providing comfort, stability and significant cost savings in travel, accommodations and meals.

The annual Give a Hand Fundraiser helps families to stay close during their time of need while their child is being treated at one of Sacramento's local hospitals, including UC Davis Children’s Hospital.
Fans can make a donation at any participating McDonald’s location throughout the Sacramento, Stockton and Modesto region. Fans who donate will also receive a coupon for small fries or a hashbrown.
