Ronald McDonald House of Greater Washington DC
Feed the House Campaign
In an effort to help the Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Greater Washington, DC (RMHCDC) secure funding and generate more awareness around their signature volunteer cooking program, Maroon PR brought a partnership idea to the RMHCDC team for a nutrition collaboration with Giant Foods. Maroon PR developed the proposed “Feed the House” campaign which led to the campaign partnership and an additional donation of $10,000 worth of gifts cards from Giant to support those who participate.
Thousand Media Impressions
Thousand Social Media Impressions
Feed the House supports a program within the organization that provides a ‘home-away-from-home’ for families with a child being treated at a local hospital. In an effort to promote health, wellness and giving back locally, Giant Food’s Registered Dietitian team created month-long meal plans volunteers can follow to offer families staying in the DC area houses a varied menu of healthy and delicious options.
Using National Nutrition Month as the launch hook, Maroon PR worked with Giant Foods to build the Feed the House campaign and launch it on March 1. Pre-launch efforts included logo and content development including graphics and video, campaign messaging and a media relations strategy.
Once the campaign was branded, Maroon PR used an integrated approach to market the campaign, focusing on media relations and social media to help tell the story of this great partnership.
Since launch, Maroon PR has secured two Washington DC TV segments to promote the campaign and RMHCDC volunteer opportunities, and created social content for over 30 social media posts in support of Feed the House. Maroon PR continues to promote the campaign, using a variety to hooks to secure media attention and social media engagements.
