PITTSBURGH, June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- McDonald's restaurant customers across western PA can now enjoy a great meal and a great deal – all while supporting a great charity.

That's because now through July 11 or while supplies last, every time consumers pick up a meal at McDonald's they can also pick up a deep-discount coupon for exams and eyewear at Visionworks.  Coupons are available in both the dining room and at the drive-thru window.  For each coupon redeemed, Visionworks will make a cash donation to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Pittsburgh.

"Visionworks recently opened our sixth location in the greater Pittsburgh area," said John DiIanni, Regional Vice President.  "This partnership allows us to reach out to McDonald's value-conscious customers while also demonstrating our commitment to the local charitable organizations that are important to Pittsburgh."

Adjacent to Children's Hospital in Lawrenceville, Ronald McDonald House is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides a "Home Away From Home" for families who have traveled to Pittsburgh seeking life-saving medical treatment for their children.

Visionworks is a full-service optical retail center featuring several thousand private label and designer frames along with contact lenses at value prices. One of the nation's leading providers of eye care services, Visionworks has already debuted stores in the Cranberry Commons Mall, The Mall at Robinson, South Hills Village, Monroeville Mall, Ross Park Mall and Southland Commons in Pleasant Hills.  Several more Visionworks sites are expected to open soon.
