RMHC UPDATE COVID-19
Even if we can't all BE together, we can COME together.
When you make a donation, you are giving the gift of togetherness during trying times to families with ill children. Even though it costs $75 per night to house a family, RMHC of Greater Chattanooga allows families in need to stay with us at no cost. Your support will ensure that the Ronald McDonald House® will always be a place where ill children and their families can set aside some of their worries, at least for a little while.
At the Chattanooga Ronald McDonald House the well-being of our families, volunteers and staff are our highest priority.
Effective immediately, to reduce the possibility of infection, we are halting all volunteer programs and closing the House to volunteers & visitors.
We are in contact with our hospital partners and local health authorities who are closely monitoring the dynamic situation of COVID-19 and we will continue to act carefully to ensure all precautionary steps are taken.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
In these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever to get help with providing meals. Therefore, we are calling on our community to help cover the cost to provide dinner for our families, since our volunteer meal program is currently suspended.
According to our guidelines, we are unable to accept already prepared meals. Exceptions include meals that are prepared in commercial kitchens.
The best way to help us provide meals:
- Provide local restaurant gift cards so that meals can be easily ordered & delivered
- Give the gift of helping provide a meal one night for 25-30 people staying at the House or families staying in hotels during this time.
- Donate items off our Wish List
- Click DONATE NOW to give a gift to help with these needs
