Bring Holiday Cheer To Ronald McDonald House Families

The holidays are a time spent with friends and family; unfortunately, that isn’t always possible. Families staying at the Ronald McDonald House very commonly have to stay during the holidays to continue caring for their sick or injured children.

There are several ways that you can help support families this holiday season:

Fund a Family

With a financial gift of $120, you can help support a family for 12 nights at our Houses. Donations can be made in honor or memory of a loved one! Click here to donate.

Light a Luminary

Through our Light a Luminary project, we aim to spread awareness and light up streets all over Eastern North Carolina on December 24th in honor of families that cannot be home during the holidays. All funds raised go directly to supporting our mission. Click here to learn more.

Santa Room

We set up a bedroom filled with toys and gifts for our families to go “shopping.” This takes some of the holiday shopping stress away from them. You can see our wish list for the Santa Room here! We accept donations 7 days a week from 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM. All toys donated must be unopened and unused due to the population we serve. You can find our regular wish list here.

Make a Meal

Food is what makes a house a home. Cook a meal for our families during the holiday season and provide a sense of comfort! We are looking for volunteers that would be willing to cook lunch or dinner on December 25th, and have several other dates open as well. Check out our Make a Meal page for more information.

Due to our census changing daily, we do not offer sponsorships of a specific family (such as an angel tree). However, any donation you make both financial and of toys and gifts will go directly to the current and future families staying at our Ronald McDonald Houses.

If you have another way you would like to get involved during the holidays, reach out to us by emailing or calling (252) 847-5435.
