Dear Friends and Supporters,
All of us here at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Pittsburgh and Morgantown, Inc. are deeply grateful for the dedicated community of supporters who have weathered the storms of 2020 with strength and determination. Each of you was determined to carry out the Charity’s mission despite enormous challenges.
Fortunately, during the entire pandemic, our doors remained open to families seeking comfort. We’ve been there for them, offering something certain in the swirl of uncertainty. While we may have had to adjust our processes a bit, we were here and, as the saying goes, “we didn’t miss a beat.”
Many of you asked how you could continue to support the families we serve—and you answered the call in mighty ways. From supporting the newly-created Meal Fund to donating supplies, treats and even presents over the holiday season, there wasn’t a single day that the families staying here didn’t know how much they were cared for by you. Your generous donations allowed families to stay together, no matter how far they are from home.
As operations begin to shift towards a return to normal, you can be confident that the health, safety and comfort of each guest remains a top priority. We will keep you updated on important topics like when volunteers might be allowed back into the House and when extended families can stay once again. With your help and understanding, we’re confident that each step will bring us closer to a more typical way of life here at the Charity.
Thank you for your continued support. You are, without question, a vital part of the family!

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.
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.
