How you can help at the holidays
Holiday Card Tribute Program
Let family, friends, coworkers and clients know you’re thinking of them this holiday season by making a donation to RMHC St. Louis in their name through our Holiday Card Tribute Program. Holiday tribute cards feature a new snowflake heart design, read “Happy Holidays” and are signed and mailed by RMHC staff to a list provided by you. Already have your holiday cards with that cute shot of the kids at the beach or the employees at the company picnic? Our holiday card inserts are flat notes (4×5.5 inches) with the same snowflake heart design that can be placed inside your own holiday cards. “Happy Holidays,” “Happy Hanukkah” and “Merry Christmas” inserts are available. A minimum donation of $5 per card or insert is requested. To purchase holiday cards or inserts, please contact Jaclyn French at 314-932-4146 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Traditional Holiday Cards
Packages of traditional holiday cards, which read “Season’s Greetings” on the front and “Wishing you a bright and joyous holiday season and happiness in the coming year” inside, are also available for purchase and are $12 for 10 cards. For more information or to purchase, visit any St. Louis Ronald McDonald House location during normal business hours, or call 314-773-1100.

Donate a Holiday Wish List Item
Donate a new, unwrapped gift or gift card from our Holiday Wish List to the McGift Shoppe, where families staying at one of our three Ronald McDonald Houses can shop for loved ones free-of-charge during the month of December. For a copy of the Holiday Wish List, click here. We also need items from our year-round Wish List, which keep our Houses and Family Rooms running as homes. To download our 2017 Wish List, please click here.
Sponsor A Family
Give a gift that gives back: Sponsor A Family in someone’s memory or honor. Families staying at the Ronald McDonald House are asked to contribute a small donation per night for their stay. However, nearly 60% of our families are unable to pay due to mounting medical bills and other uninsured expenses. You can help by sponsoring a family’s stay, or a portion of their stay. Donations of all sizes support our mission. Please click here to make a Season of Giving donation online.
