McDonalds Doubles Grant Award to UACCH Kids’ College Program

April 10, 2012

The University of Arkansas Community College at Hope Foundation is pleased to announce that the Ronald McDonald House Charities Global grant and its matching grant from Ronald McDonald House Charities of Texarkana doubled their support for the UACCH Kids’ College program through the award of an $8,000 gift to the UACCH Foundation.  This gift is made possible by local McDonald’s owners Steve and Celia Montgomery and their McDonald’s customers. 

The Montgomerys shared with the UACCH Chancellor during the recent check presentation that a portion of each “Happy Meal” purchased at local McDonalds is set aside to support programs like this.  The Montgomerys and McDonald’s have been supporters of the UACCH Kids’ College program for many years. The UACCH Foundation appreciates the increase in support for this program held each summer at the College for children in 1st – 6th grades. Registration for Kids’ College is underway, so interested individuals should visit the college website. 

Please help the UACCH Foundation express our appreciation to Steve and Celia Montgomery for their support of this program.  For more information about the UACCH Foundation, visit the college website at www.uacch.edu.  Register Today for classes, including Kids’ College and let UACCH be your bridge to a brighter future!
