Make our wishes come true
Families staying at our Ronald McDonald Houses are often pressed for time between doctor’s appointments, caring for their children, and some come to us without their own transportation. As a part of providing a “home away from home,” it is important to provide them with items necessary for everyday life.
The Happy Wheels hospitality cart provides a bit of comfort as it travels the hospital hallways, offering refreshments, books, toys and a moment of respite. This program allows us to serve more families than ever before. Like our Ronald McDonald Houses, the Happy Wheels Cart is supported through the generosity of the community.
Consider purchasing items while you are out shopping, check our Facebook page for “Wish List Wednesday,” have fun with a Wish List Shower/ Birthday Party, or host a Wish List Drive to help make a difference in the lives of many families we serve! Please keep in mind that we can only accept new items.
