So many of you have asked how you can continue to support the families we serve. We are excited to share with you that now through the end of the year, we are Celebrating Champions. Please join us this holiday season and become a champion for the families we serve.

Your generous donation means that families never have to be apart no matter how far they are from home.

May you have an especially wonderful holiday season! Thank you for your continued support.

Dear Friends and Supporters,

As we continue to navigate through these uncertain times, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Pittsburgh and Morgantown, Inc. remains committed to providing families with a safe and supportive environment.

For several months now, we have been safely welcoming new families back into our Houses. Our families are already facing adverse situations being far from home with a sick child and we are grateful to be able to help them during this exceptionally challenging time.

In addition, our Ronald McDonald Care Mobile is back on the road bringing pediatric medical services to underserved communities in the Greater Pittsburgh region.  This summer, the program safely provided much-needed immunizations and sports physicals.  These services were vital in helping families prepare for the upcoming school year.

Thank You!

We want to take a moment to thank everyone who has helped us carry out our mission during this difficult time. It has been nearly six months since we have had to suspend our volunteer programs, including our meal program.  In order to continue to meet this important need for our families, we have reached out to the community for help and you have responded by donating more than 300 meals. Furthermore, countless wish list items have been delivered to fill our pantries.

Additionally, we have had to cancel many of our special events this year. These events are so crucial in helping us sustain our mission. We are so fortunate though to have the ongoing support of our dedicated friends. Because of your generous donations, we have been able to keep our doors open and provide our families with the comforts of home.

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Pittsburgh and Morgantown, Inc. is pleased to share that we have safely begun to welcome new families back into our Ronald McDonald House program. This will be a phased approach, and we will begin by admitting a limited number of families at a time. This will be accompanied by a robust set of procedures designed to protect families and staff to the greatest extent possible, including heightened cleaning and disinfection protocols, social distancing measures, wellness checks and use of personal protective equipment.

We will continue to work closely with our Board of Directors, partner hospitals, local health authorities and RMHC Global to ensure we are taking every precaution to protect the children and families we serve and our team that serves them. We do not take this responsibility lightly. We will continue to keep you updated as we move forward through the various phases of program reinstatement.

We are grateful to the community for their support in helping us carry out our mission each and every day during this difficult time.  Your generous donations of meals and wish list items have been invaluable. Because of you, our families can focus on the well-being of their sick child and we can help them with the rest. By working together, we are making a difference for so many in need.
