Equitable Gas Company Announces 3rd Annual Fueling Your Day With Love Campaign To Benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities® Of Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For the third consecutive year, Equitable Gas Company will once again partner with Pittsburgh area McDonald's restaurants for the "Fueling Your Day With Love" campaign to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Pittsburgh. 

In continuing its efforts to improve the well-being of children in western Pennsylvania and the communities it serves, Equitable Gas Company has promised to donate two cents to RMHC of Pittsburgh for each cup of McDonald's Premium Roast Drip Coffee that is purchased at all Pittsburgh area McDonald's restaurants from March 18 through April 30.

At 4:00 p.m. on Monday, March 18, professional hockey player Matt Cooke, an enthusiastic volunteer for RMHC of Pittsburgh and spokesman for the campaign, will help kick-off the program at a press conference taking place at the North Shore McDonald's located at 801 Allegheny Avenue in Pittsburgh. 

In the past two years, the "Fueling Your Day With Love" campaign has raised a total of $41,000 for RMHC of Pittsburgh.

"The 'Fueling Your Day With Love' campaign has become an annual program that has continued to grow and Equitable Gas is proud to once again partner with our neighborhood McDonald's restaurants to support Ronald McDonald House Charities of Pittsburgh," said Bill Lucas, President of Equitable Gas Company.  "When customers buy a delicious hot cup of McDonald's coffee to fuel their day, they can also know they are helping a family and sick child in need."

By providing the necessities of home, Ronald McDonald House helps families focus solely on the well-being of their sick children.                                                         

"With the generosity of Equitable Gas Company, McDonald's and Matt Cooke, we have been able to use the funds raised by this campaign to provide more families who are facing tremendous challenges with lodging and more amenities to meet their needs during their stay with us," said Eleanor Reigel, Executive Director of RMHC of Pittsburgh.
