In order to keep our guests as comfortable as possible, the Ronald McDonald House of CT tries to keep a full supply of foods, household items, and toiletries available. Many of these items are generously donated to the House, but there is always the need for additional items.

If you are looking for a way to help, consider donating from the list of items below. Collecting items on the Wish List is a great fundraising opportunity for groups and/or individuals.

  • Any contribution is appreciated, however, for reasons of health and safety, all items must be new. We cannot accept any stuffed animals.
  • Fresh vegetables and fruits are always welcome.
  • Grocery store gift cards in any denomination are always welcome and always needed!
  • Please be sure all items are new and in original packaging, and please check your expiration dates and recall lists.

Please email Antonnique Robinson at to arrange a time to drop them off at the House. Drop off time between 9 am and 5 pm.
