RMHC Donation Boxes
Your spare change goes a long way to help families with sick children
A dime here. A quarter there. It might not seem like much, but when millions give, those coins can help children and families around the world. Watch the video to see the impact that change had on one family.
Just how powerful is the small change dropped into the Donation Box?
Change from one full Donation Box…
- Could give a family the comfort, support and resources they need while their child is in the hospital, at a Ronald McDonald House. A Ronald McDonald House is much more than just a place to sleep and eat.
- Could give parents a place to recharge, grab a bite to eat, take a shower, or get some rest, in a Ronald McDonald Family Room. Just steps from the NICU, a Ronald McDonald Family Room is as far away as parents with a sick infant want to be.
- could help bring medical, dental and health care resources directly to children near their home and school, on a Ronald McDonald Care Mobile. A Ronald McDonald Care Mobile gives families access to care they might not otherwise have.
The RMHC Donation Box program inside McDonald’s restaurants is our largest on-going fundraiser. Next time you visit a McDonald’s please drop your spare change in the RMHC Donation Box and help keep families close to the care and resources they need.
YOUR SMALL CHANGE CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE
Find a McDonald’s restaurant near you and drop your spare change in the RMHC Donation Boxes near the registers or in the drive-thru. Little by little, that change can change the lives of families with sick children.
WHAT WE DO
Keeping families close to each other and the care they need.

When “it happens to you,” RMHC is there to help
Like many young students in Orland Park, Ill., Laurie Cepkauskas collected pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House in town. And like her peers, she didn’t do it because she knew exactly what the charity was doing, but because that’s just what students did. “I really didn’t know anything about it exc...

RMHC has been there for us through the years
My family’s first experience with the Ronald McDonald House of Durham and Wake was when my son Paris was three years old. After months of trying to figure out why Paris was so ill, we learned that he had restrictive cardio myopathy. The doctors sent us to see heart specialists at Duke Children's...

It's hard to put into words what RMHC has meant to us
When Noelle Johnson is asked about her son Jordan’s health, she can rattle off the dates of his three heart surgeries, his seven-month stay in the hospital as a newborn, when he got a tracheotomy tube inserted to help him breathe and the nights she’s spent by her 12-year-old’s side every time he’s c...

RMHC helped us cope while our child was hospitalized
I knew about RMHC before our daughter Autumn was hospitalized, but I had no idea what it would mean to us to be able to stay at the House. I had no idea just how much thought and effort staff and volunteers put into making life easier for families with sick children. Our eleven-month-old daughter Au... Read more about The Wehr Family
