Share A Night Ornaments

Families that have to travel far from home to get the best care for their sick kids find a “home-away-from-home” at our Ronald McDonald Houses. Families are given the option to make a suggested donation of $15 a night for their stay – but no one is ever turned away for their inability to pay. One Share A Night ornament covers the donation for a family to stay with us for one night. You can help families when they need it most.

Our annual $15 ornament sponsors a one-night stay for a family at our Ronald McDonald Houses. Visit this page for updates on availability.
