COVID-19 Updates

We need you!

Much like our the rest of our communities, our House is continuing to respond and stay updated on the rapid changes created by COVID-19.

An update of operational changes due to the pandemic:

  1. On March 16th, our in-person volunteer program including individual, group and meal groups, was suspended.
  2. On March 21st, Ronald McDonald Houses worldwide temporarily stopped accepting new families our Houses but continued to support the current families throughout the end of their stay.
  3. In August, we resumed accepting new families with new guidelines in place.
  4. Also in August, a Virtual Volunteer Program was created for volunteers to continue the support of our mission at home!
  5. We follow state and national disease-prevention guidelines, including screening and physical-distancing measures; this means most of our common room areas are closed.

How can you help?

  1. Our in-person meal program is still suspended, however meals are still needed for the families staying at our Houses. Meals can be delivered from a commercial kitchen such as restaurants. You may also provide a gift card to a local restaurant or grocery store to help support our families! Contact Katie Ashby for more information.
  2. One of the easiest ways to support our families is providing a financial contribution. These are needed more than ever!
  3. Check out our Ways to Help page for other opportunities or sign up to become a Virtual Volunteer.
