A family drops everything when their child becomes seriously ill or injured, and treatment can often last for weeks or even months. Imagine if this all happens far away from their home.
Every year, more than 1,600 families find themselves at our front door because they are seeking lodging while their children receive top-notch healthcare in Louisville. RMHCK’s mission is to provide a home away from home for these families. We offer a safe haven and home-like atmosphere so families can focus on what matters most – their critically ill children.
For one year, you will sponsor one of our 36 guest rooms in our Ronald McDonald House. You will directly affect the lives of many families who will call this room “home” while their child is receiving specialized medical treatment. You will help us provide the following:
- All the comforts of home, two blocks from our downtown hospitals, including Norton Children’s Hospital.
- A comfortable, private bedroom with linens and toiletries, fully-stocked kitchens, home-cooked meals, laundry facilities, a playroom, computers with internet access and an outdoor play area
- The opportunity for families to feel support and give support to other families
Also, this major gift opportunity will help ensure the ongoing financial sustainability of RMHCK and provides a personal and meaningful way for you to share in the work of our Ronald McDonald House.
Why Sponsor A Guestroom?
“We are room sponsors for the Ronald McDonald House of Kentuckiana because of our niece Jordyn. Without the Ronald McDonald House, our family dynamic would be much different and far more stressful. We know when our niece receives treatment, she has a safe, secure, and inviting location to call home whether it be for a single night or for many months. Because of the security we feel, we wanted to do whatever it takes to allow families here at home to feel the same type of security. While we cannot prevent families from experiencing the stress of an illness, we can certainly take steps to make their journey as comfortable and stress free as possible. Being a room sponsor for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kentuckiana is one of the most rewarding and meaningful things we can do to help all the families that must experience illness.” – Kris and Aprile Hamilton
You can sponsor a room with $2,500 annual contribution.
