Keeping Families Close
Mission Moment
"Everyone has a story here. Everyone has their own journey. You can be happy, sad, whatever you're feeling, and it's okay."

A Partnership in Healing
The journalists at Riley Children’s Hospital at Indiana University Health have shared a great story about a brave little patient whose parents also happen to be staying here at the Ronald McDonald House. Take a moment and read about adorable James Guzman!

Hi fur-riends! 

I’ve been exploring the House, and my friends here are telling me they need donations! Here’s what we’re in need of the most:
  • Dinner sized paper plates and bowls
  • Liquid laundry detergent
  • Disinfectant wipes and air freshener
  • Snacks like chips, crackers, and granola bars
  • Family size canned soups
  • Fruit, pudding, or jello cups

Be sure to come see me for some warm cuddles when you drop off your donations!
