Ronald McDonald House Charities
Mission: We, in partnership with our community, provide a comfortable and caring home-away-from-home that supports keeping families together and reduces stress during a child’s serious illness.
About Us: In the midst of a global health crisis and without skipping a beat, we’ve provided food, shelter, comfort and love to families with sick kids. Due to COVID-19, RMHC-UM has paused our 10,000-person strong volunteer program including Cooks for Kids. We are committed to providing meal services to our families–as childhood illness and injury doesn’t stop during a world health crisis–with a small on-site staff preparing breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day as well as snack and activity bags for our hospital partners. Despite the challenges and changes in the world, our number one priority continues to be the health and well-being of our families, staff and supporters. And, because we’ve paused our extensive volunteer program, financial and in-kind gifts are more important to our organization than ever before.
