"It would not have been possible to stay at the hospital up to 14 hours a day without a place like the Ronald McDonald House. A place where we always felt welcomed and supported. A place where people in very similar situations lean on each other. A place where people really did care about our day."
There are a variety of ways to give to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Oklahoma City
Change a Life. Give 5 Today.
It only takes 5 minutes to sign-up to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House® or Ronald McDonald Family Room® of Oklahoma City. Your donation of time can help families receive hot meals, receive a caring voice answering the telephone and clean rooms when they arrive. We have many options available to fit your schedule and make our families' lives that much easier.
If your schedule is already packed, don't worry you can still help. In 5 minutes you can make a donation, however big or small, and help parents and siblings with their sick child. Your donation will provide food, high-quality services and a place to stay and relax just like home. A little can change a lot.
No matter how you say it, 5 means... 5 minutes to give, 5 minutes to volunteer, 5 minutes to share. Change a life! Give 5 today!
Guest Chef Program
Families who have been in the hospital or a doctors appointment all day look forward to the comfort of an evening meal. Meals may be prepared in our well-equipped kitchen or arranged from a restaurant or deli. This may be a one-time volunteer opportunity or scheduled on an on-going basis. Great opportunity for individuals, small groups, organizations and/or local restaurants! For more information call 405.424.6873.
Pull Tabs Program
Why collect pull-tabs?
Pull-tabs, the little rings on top of many cans? How can they help?
Pull-tabs contain a higher quality of aluminum than cans, are more clean and convenient to store. Pull-tabs are welcomed by our local recycler, who works with RMHC to raise funds.
