The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana (RMHC-CNI) is to care for families of children with complex medical needs by providing comfort, compassion and community. RMHC-CNI keeps families of hospitalized children together in a ‘home away from home’. Their programs include providing supportive residence at four Ronald McDonald houses throughout the Chicagoland area, offering a haven of respite at a Ronald McDonald family room at Edward Hospital in Naperville, providing essential health services to children in under-served areas through a care mobile, and awarding scholarships to academically outstanding, community-minded and economically challenged young people.
There are many ways you can help the Ronald McDonald House Charities. There are four different houses throughout the Chicagoland area, along with a Ronald McDonald Family Room in Edward Hospital. Some volunteer opportunities include: preparing a meal for families, helping with house work, volunteering at a fundraising event, collecting pop tabs, etc. They have an easy to use calendar on their website, along with additional information. Some houses do have minimum age requirements, but many do allow children as long as they have a guardian with them when volunteering.
