Happy RMHC family

Make a difference

We believe in bringing communities together at local levels to support families from around the world throughout their entire healthcare journey. There are many ways that you can get involved to support our families.

Whether you donate your time, money or services, you help to support hundreds of families with ill or injured children all year long. Your efforts and generosity can help us support families and their children during stressful and frightening times. However you choose to support our Houses, you make a difference.

Become a volunteer

While there are many ways you can donate to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Connecticut and Western Massachusetts, volunteers are the heart of each of our Ronald McDonald Houses.

Our volunteers make all the difference in the lives of our families—cooking, hosting, nurturing, or simply being there to offer support when they can. Volunteers help to offset costs and expenses that help us better allocate resources to services and programs for those staying with us. While we focus on the critical needs of parents and their children, volunteers are our lifeline.
