Welcome Home

Help us welcome families home!

Renovation and Expansion

Over the last 18 months, we have expanded both Ronald McDonald House programs from a total of 34 guest suites to 56!  Renovations included common areas and amenities, too.  The expansion of our Ronald McDonald House programs will better position us to help the 200 families on our wait lists annually.

Impact of COVID-19

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, health remains our number one priority. Our staff is taking extra precautions to create an environment that adheres to social distancing guidelines, yet also feels comfortable and inviting for children and families.

You Can Help Welcome Families Home

In celebration of welcoming families home, and in support of prioritizing the health and safety of those we serve, we are asking for you to consider making a special gift at any of the below levels.

Meal Donation ($750)

After a tough day at the hospital, a warm, delicious meal is just what the doctor ordered for our families. Help us #FeedTheHouse at both locations!

Welcome-Home
Welcome Home Gift Basket ($100)

Help our families feel at home with a gift basket including snacks, toys, and a handwritten note upon arrival to the House.

Winnie-Bittner-1
Sponsor A Night ($200)

Operating a guest room for one night costs us $200. Because we only ask for a suggested donation of $15 from families, this amount must be fully funded through philanthropic support.

AU-food-drive
Pantry Pile ($25)

After being closed for construction, we need to restock our pantries with shelf stable items! Help us keep families fed and energized during their stay.

COVID Cleaning ($500)

Help keep our House programs clean and safe. Cover the cost of one week of professional cleaning – focusing on disinfecting surfaces to prevent the spread of COVID.

Untitled-design-1-1
Virtual Family Fun ($50)

Provide virtual entertainment for children & their families during their stays. Your support will ensure we have supplies for families to enjoy a fun and creative virtual engagement.
