Our Charity’s tapestry of giving is woven together by the golden threads of families, donors, volunteers, staff and the medical community.
Become a part of that tapestry, become a golden thread by becoming a Gift of Light Gift of Love sponsor.
The funds raised enable RMHC to operate two programs which keep families near each other and the care they need while their sick child is being treated at Freeman Health System and Mercy Hospital Joplin.
• Ronald McDonald House – serving families who must travel far from home, our House is much more than a room to stay in. It provides comfort, support and resources for families with sick children just steps from the hospital.
• Ronald McDonald Family Room – moments away from a child’s bedside, the Family Room provides moms and dads a place to recharge. Families grab a bite to eat, shower and get rest so they can be strong for their children.
Our goal is to raise $125,000 for the sole purpose of giving a family with a sick child what they need most – each other. For a sick child, sometimes the best medicine of all is having family nearby for more hugs, kisses and I love you’s.
RMHC values gifts of any size. Let your gift become a thread of gold in weaving the tapestry of giving for these families.
