A fund-raising campaign to benefit the Oklahoma City Ronald McDonald Children's Tomorrow House is being held now through April by Oklahoma grocers and Scott Paper Co.

Major Scott brands will carry a special package designated to alert consumers to the fact that their purchases trigger a donation to the Ronald McDonald Houses.

Scott Paper plans to raise $1 million for Ronald McDonald Houses and Ronald McDonald Children's Charities throughout the country. The million-dollar donation will be reached through a combination of these special purchases and a direct corporate gift from Scott. The company will also donate a year's supply of paper products to each Ronald McDonald House.

In Oklahoma City, Ronald McDonald House has served in excess of 650 families from 76 of the state's 77 counties since it opened in April 1984. Scott will donate funds directly to the Oklahoma City house through the purchase of Scott brands in the name of Oklahoma chains, retailers and wholesalers participating in the fund-raiser.
