Rent-to-own News - Carrico named Ronald McDonald House Chair

Larry Carrico, CEO of SKC Enterprises in Mt. Vernon, is the new chairman of the board of directors of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Metro St. Louis.

"The Ronald McDonald House is a fantastic organization," Carrico said. “We have co-workers and clients who live outside of the 50 mile perimeter of St. Louis that may have used the House in their time of need. Serving as the new chairman allows me to give back to an organization that has helped many people I have a personal contact with. Whenever I share a story with a group about the RMHC I always hear an individual story of how the House has touched a child’s life. I am honored to accept the position of chairman."

SKC Enterprises is a rental purchase business with 51 stores and almost 400 employees in Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Arkansas and Tennessee.

Carrico began his relationship with RMHC about 10 years ago, when he began donating televisions to each of the eight long-term RMHC apartments through one of his businesses, Rent One. He also implemented a successful employee giving campaign for RMHC, raising more than $40,000. He hosts several fundraisers to help RMHC, ranging from golf outings to softball tournaments.

Carrico served as the public relations and marketing committee chair for five years and also serves on the development and executive committees.

"Larry has been a great friend to RMHC over the years and we are so excited that he has been appointed as the new chairman of the board of directors," RMHC President Dan Harbaugh said.
