Ronald McDonald House Charities® Southwest Florida gives a family with a hospitalized child what they need most - each other.
The Problem and Our Purpose: Faced with a child’s illness, life stops overnight and parents enter a world of fear and worry. For parents who don’t live close to the medical care their child needs, there’s an added stress. Distance. Most families have to travel hours for treatment. Living expenses quickly add up. Long drives, lost jobs, worried siblings, sleeping in cars, being far from family and friends. These are extra burdens no family should have to experience.
With the generosity of our community, the efforts of our volunteers, staff and local McDonald’s restaurant owner operators, we are meeting our mission through three programs. RMHC of Southwest Florida supports:
To all of you who donate so generously, rest assured that your contributions are used effectively and are very much appreciated by the families and children we serve.
Together, we can do big things.
