Alternative Ways to Give

The smallest gestures can impact lives in a big way. No one knows this better than the children and families staying at the Ronald McDonald Houses. Every day, their lives are made a little easier by the generosity of donors and volunteers. Whether it is a warm meal waiting for them or a toothbrush they forgot to pack— these items make getting through the day a little easier.

You can even get together with a bunch of friends, family members or co-workers to make a handful of small items add up to one large gift.  Check out  the websites below for ways you can help RMHCT and RMH Springfield receive funds to support all the families that call us home:
