RMHCDC COVID-19 STATEMENT

Updated 3/12/2020

At RMHCDC, the health and well-being of our guests, families, volunteers and staff is our highest priority. We continue to closely monitor the dynamic situation of COVID-19 and we will continue to act thoughtfully to ensure all precautionary steps are taken.

Due to the rapidly changing situation and for the protection of our community, we have determined that all non-essential staff and volunteers will not be in the House.

RMHCDC follows strict infectious disease protocols to ensure the safety of our families and staff.

We are in regular contact with our hospital partners and local health authorities who monitor the situation.  We have implemented a more frequent schedule for cleaning and disinfecting our common use spaces and have issued  guidelines and supplies for our families to do the same.

As the situation changes, we will take additional actions to protect our staff and families. Our mission is more pressing than ever. Thank you for your shared dedication to the families we serve. To support the families we are still caring for at our Ronald McDonald House, please give here.

As the need arises, we will take additional action to protect our staff and the families we serve.

If you have questions, please contact info@rmhcdc.org.


Many of you have asked how you can help our families – thank you for kindness.

Donors like you help make it possible for us to manage an extreme situation like the one we face today. See below for some ways you can help.

Monetary Donations
We need monetary gifts to support purchasing meals for families and to continue meeting their everyday needs. It costs us $250 daily to feed families at the House. Your support is critical since volunteers will not be able to provide meals for our families. Give today.

Funds raised will help support the families who are depending on us even more as a “home-away-from-home” during this rapidly changing pandemic.
