SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co. (“Reliance”) (NYSE:RS) President and CEO Karla Lewis presented a $1 million donation check to Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®). The gift was accepted by RMHC Global President and CEO, Katie Fitzgerald, at the annual Reliance Managers’ Meeting on March 9, 2023.

“Ronald McDonald House Charities serves millions of children and their families every year, helping provide access to healthcare for families who must travel far from home for their child’s care,” said Fitzgerald. “We’re incredibly grateful for Reliance Steel & Aluminum Co.’s generous donation that will undoubtedly help impact the health and well-being of children and families around the world.”

Mrs. Lewis remarked, “Reliance believes in the incredible work that is being done by Ronald McDonald House Charities and is excited to provide increased financial and volunteer support to RMHC. It was important to us that our first major contribution as part of the expanded Reliance Cares program goes to an organization that supports many of the local communities where we live and work.”

The $1 million donation, made on behalf of all employees across the Reliance Family of Companies, commemorates a significant expansion of the Reliance Cares program, initially launched in 2017 as an employee supported (and company matched) internal emergency assistance fund. Moving forward, Reliance Cares takes on a bigger mission as Reliance’s Corporate Social Responsibility program. Reliance is committed to promoting the health, safety, and wellbeing of its employees and their families, as well as supporting our communities. This ongoing partnership with RMHC will positively impact the lives of families with children who are sick, as well as provide Reliance employees with in-person and virtual engagement opportunities to make a personal connection with the mission of RMHC in the 12 countries and 40 U.S. states in which Reliance operates.
