    RMHC Donation Boxes

    Your spare change adds up to a lot of help

    A dime here. A quarter there. It might not seem like much. But when millions give, the amount those coins help children and families worldwide is truly amazing.



    The RMHC Donation Boxes are our system’s largest ongoing fundraisers. It’s from people like you filling the Donation Boxes with quarters, dimes and nickels. Last year alone, more than $50 million was collected worldwide.

    Just how powerful is the small change dropped into the Donation Box?

    1. If every McDonald’s customer dropped in a penny into an RMHC Donation Box every time they visited, we could raise more than $250 million to support RMHC children and families around the world.
    2. A full Donation Box could let a family stay together at a Ronald McDonald House for up to one night while their child receives care at a nearby hospital.
    3. A full Donation Box could provide a child with a dental screening in a Ronald McDonald Care Mobile.
    4. Change in the Donation Boxes can give families a place to rest in a Ronald McDonald Family Room, just steps from their child’s hospital bed.

    Show your support when you see a Donation Box at a McDonald’s by dropping in your spare change. Spread the word and suggest to your friends and family that they do the same.

    Your Small Change Can Make a Big Difference
    An even easier way for you to help support RMHC is to drop your spare change in the RMHC Donation Boxes at participating McDonald’s restaurants. Little by little, it adds up and can mean a lot.

      RMHC Gave Us Peace Of Mind

      To Graciela and Jose Acosta, RMHC is nothing short of a blessing.  The family stayed at the Ronald McDonald House near Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital for a month when their son, Santiago was a very sick infant.  As soon as they arrived, a burden was lifted. “When we came to the door something cha...

      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

      On the morning of her third birthday, my daughter Amelia was diagnosed with lymphoblastic leukemia. She needed to be airlifted to Kansas City for immediate treatment.

      Your small change makes a difference

      Spare change dropped in RMHC Donation Boxes at McDonald’s restaurants can make a huge difference to families with sick kids.  Recently, because donations gave two Texas children and their family access to the medical care they needed, they were also able to share an experience of a lifetime together...

      RMHC Helped Us Cope Before, During, and After Bradley’s Transplant

      On February 17, 2015, my four-year-old son Bradley received a life-saving stem cell transplant from his twin sister Charlotte (Charlie). So far, it seems that Charlie’s donated stem cells have taken over in the line where Bradley’s cancer was. We are very optimistic that this treatment will prevent ...
