BEYOND THE CHECK: Ways to Support Grantee Ronald McDonald House

2019 General Operating grantee Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey offers hope, help, and home for families of seriously ill children. They do this by providing accommodations for families and pediatric patients who receive treatment at local hospitals within the Philadelphia region. It is proven that children heal faster and parents experience less stress when they are together during times of critical illness or traumatic injury.

In 2019, RMHSNJ applied for $100,000 to replace carpet throughout the facility with engineered hard wood floors that would be easier to clean and maintain. Although they were awarded a $27,500 general operating grant, a generous Impact100 South Jersey member whose family owned a flooring business completed the project for $27,500. [Read more.]

Impact100 SJ members can help RMHSNJ “beyond the check” through volunteering, providing meals, or contributing to their wish list. Their website provides several ways you can support their mission and help families get through a most stressful time.

Currently RMH Needs Help Feeding Their Families 

RMHSNJ families need warm, nourishing meals everyday before and after their long, tiring days at the hospital. You can sign up HERE to provide breakfast or dinner on any of the available dates shown on the calendar below.

They welcome groups of up to 6 adults to prepare and serve family meals at their location in Camden.  Groups purchase the food needed, take it to the House on their selected day and prepare a delicious meal in their commercial kitchen. You will work with their Guest Services Manager, Eva to finalize the details of your meal service.

This is a great opportunity to bring together friends or members of Impact100 SJ you are or have become close with. Or consider inviting members of your organization or business for a memorable bonding experience that will brighten the spirits of families struggling with childhood illness.
