Be A Light Of Hope And Love For Families At The House This Holiday Season!

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville’s mission of serving families whose children are battling against pediatric illness has not stopped during this pandemic. We are proud to say we have continued serving families in a safe and controlled manner.

These uncertain times serve as a glimpse into the worries Ronald McDonald House families feel on a daily basis. Having a child with complex medical needs is a life-changing event. A journey filled with questions regarding their child’s health and practical items such as: Where will I stay? Where will my next meal come from? Will my job be waiting for me when we return home? Will my child be okay?

That’s why we feel RMHC of Nashville is so important. We want to eliminate as many of these worries as possible so families can focus on what matters most – their sick child. Your support helps provide a safe and comfortable place for families to come back after a long day at the hospital, to a nourishing meal waiting for them in the kitchen, a community of fellow families, and so much more.
