KEEPING FAMILIES CLOSE IS WHAT MATTERS MOST.
THE HOME AWAY FROM HOME ANNUAL APPEAL
Sometimes the best health care is hundreds or even thousands of miles from home. Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of St. Louis provides a home-away-from-home for families traveling to the St. Louis area, seeking medical treatment for their seriously ill children. The Ronald McDonald House exists so that families can access the quality health care their child needs while focusing on what is most important — facing the weight of an illness together, as a family.
Through the generosity of our donors, we reached our Home Away from Home Annual Appeal goal of $800,000 in 2018! This record-breaking total will afford thousands of seriously ill children and their families comfort and care in our three Ronald McDonald Houses and four Ronald McDonald Family Rooms as they access advanced medical care in St. Louis area pediatric hospitals. On behalf of the families that we serve, thank you for making this amazing milestone possible!
We would also like to thank our 2018 Home Away from Home Appeal Honorary Chair and RMHC volunteer, Colton Parayko. Each year, Ronald McDonald House Charities of St. Louis holds the Home Away From Home Annual Appeal. This 16-week fundraiser began in 2012 and has grown into one of the largest for our organization.
Visit us again on the Home Away From Home page in September to kick-off the 2019 appeal!
