Magazine subscription sellers are going door-to-door with phony claims that they are raising money the Ronald McDonald House.
Ronald McDonald House Charities is not mounting a magazine sales drive to raise money. The sellers are fraudulently representing themselves as being part of the charity.
"It's appalling that certain individuals are attempting to deceive the community under the guise of raising money for seriously ill and injured children," said Stacey Hodge, director of community relations.
The charity has two major fundraisers a year: the Red Shoe Crawl and the RMHC Golf Classic.
The Sacramento Ronald McDonald House provides accommodations for family members when their child is hospitalized.
