CINCINNATI — Cintas Corporation has announced that the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) in Denver, Colorado, is the winner of its "Million Thanks" contest. In a contest recognizing Cintas' 1 millionth customer and the communities that have supported its success, RMH was one of the thousands of businesses nominated to win the $10,000 grand prize.
"The RMH in Denver has been a home to local families for 35 years, and we are thrilled to present them with this prize," said Scott Farmer, chief executive officer (CEO) of Cintas Corporation. "They are one of a million great businesses that rely on Cintas services so they can focus on their core business. In this case, that core business is providing a home away from home for families of children being treated at local hospitals."
Cintas plays a significant role in communities across the nation, as an employer and provider to more than 1 million local businesses. To give back to these communities, Cintas asked each customer to nominate a local business for its "Million Thanks" contest. RMH was randomly selected to win a $10,000 upgrade in Cintas products and services, including its document management, facility services, first aid and safety, fire protection and uniform apparel programs.
RMH has provided a welcome sanctuary for more than 40,000 families since its opening in 1979. Located close to Denver area children's hospitals, the two Ronald McDonald Houses can accommodate 76 families a night.
"We work hard to provide a clean, safe and comfortable home away from home for the families that stay with us," said Executive Director, Pam Whitaker, RMH. "Winning this contest will enable us to enhance these efforts and provide an even better level of service to families in need."
