House News

Groups Needed!
Volunteer to prepare and serve a meal for families that stay at our Ronald McDonald House! Businesses, churches, organizations, and groups welcome! Help us take the worry and hassle of food preparation away so that our families can focus on their hospitalized child. Learn more.

Bring your Easter basket to Geri Moulton Children's Park at USA Children's and Women's Hospital for an Easter "egg-stravaganza" featuring games, crafts, food, face-painting, balloons, petting zoo, and more!

When families walk into a Ronald McDonald Family Room, we want them to forget they’re in a hospital. Often steps away from a pediatric or intensive care unit, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms offer a place to rest and regroup right at the hospital, just moments away from their sick child.
