Help us create a Halloween for the House

In order to keep everything safe for the families we are serving, we are putting together candy and small toy kits to distribute when they trick or treat at the House in safety.

Because we can’t accept traditional donations during COVID-19, we are asking for your help to raise $500 for our festivities. You can donate through our Facebook Fundraiser link.

Thank you for helping us make this holiday as special as possible!

Meet #FightLikeEm – a RMHC Family Team in Kilts for Kids

It’s the final week of our Kilts for Kids fundraiser. We have had 12 amazing teams raising money to benefit families served by RMHC. One of our teams, #FightLikeEm took time to record why this fundraiser, and RMHC in particular, is so important to their family. While the entire video is 16 minutes long, we created a 2-minute edited version. Grab a tissue. This video goes right to the heart of our mission and why this money is so important to pediatric patient families.

Adopt A Meal for the Holidays!

Due to COVID-19, Ronald McDonald House Charities had to suspend all volunteer programs. Our Adopt-A-Meal volunteer program is one of the most impactful and valuable volunteer services that was provided to families staying at the Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Room at Primary Children’s Hospital.

Additionally, Ronald McDonald House Charities is purchasing more food than ever and providing some families with groceries so they can prepare their food in their off-site housing. Your support during this unique time – and especially for the holidays – is extremely valuable and appreciated!

Provide the gift of nourishment!

In lieu of preparing a meal onsite, we are asking groups to sign up to either provide financial support to cover a meal or to order and arrange delivery for individual, catered meals to the Ronald McDonald House or Family Room program. We need your help to provide as many meals as possible.

Please visit our website for more information or email Kacie at kacie@rmhslc.org on how to sign up and support pediatric patients and their families. You can make an impact today!!!
