Help Families During the COVID-19 Pandemic

As the world rapidly changes around us in response to COVID-19, one thing remains constant: our unwavering commitment to our mission of Keeping Families Close. In this time of change and uncertainty, we must rely on one another now more than ever. As part of the RMHC of Nashville family, we are calling on you to support us and our community partners however you are able in this time of need. Please see below some ways you can support us if you are able.

Taste of Home Program

We have suspended all volunteer activity including in-House meal groups, but our families are still relying on us to provide meals and snacks as to-go options for them during their stay. Make a donation to the “Taste of Home” program or support one of our local restaurants in their time of need by ordering a meal from them on our behalf! Visit to learn how you can provide food for families so they can focus on the health and care of their child instead of where their next meal will come from.


Each time you visit your local McDonald’s, ask the cashier in the drive-thru to “Round-Up for RMHC” and they will round up your purchase to the nearest whole dollar. Even the smallest of donations through round-up or the donation box can make such a big difference.


Underwrite the cost for a family to stay at the Nashville Ronald McDonald House. Families staying at the Ronald McDonald House are asked to contribute just $15 per night for their stay. However, more than 85% of our families are unable to pay due to mounting medical bills and other uninsured expenses. You can help by underwriting a family’s stay, or a portion of their stay. Donations of all sizes support our mission. Visit the share-a-night page to learn more about covering a families stay. Please click here to make a donation online.
