I have lived in cities with Ronald McDonald Houses most of my life, but have never been inside one until today.
Our family visited the RMH in Winston-Salem this afternoon. It was like a being in a 31,000 sqft mansion except with less superfluous bling and more love.
The RMH provides a "home away from home" for families of children who are receiving medical care in our community's hospitals.
Having a child in the hospital is stressful for any parent. Couple that with commuting to and from the hospital each day and you have a recipe for utter exhaustion.
RMH not only provides a private room and food for free, it is a safe place for the whole family to receive encouragement from staff and other families in similar situations. One of the best things about the RMH is that it is only a few hundred steps from the hospital.
We encourage you to learn about their many volunteer opportunities. For example: Did you know different volunteer groups prepare and deliver dinner for all the families every night?
Another great way to support RMD is through their wish list. They need just about every household item you would need in your own home.
Is there a Ronald McDonald House in your city? Do you know anyone who has stayed at a RMH?
