Support RMHCK families this holiday season.
For a sick child, sometimes the best medicine of all is having family nearby for more hugs, kisses and I love you’s. RMHC helps keep families together with their children to do just that. You can help provide the magic of the holidays for families who stay with us during November and December by participating in one or more of the activities below.
Holiday Wish List
Every December Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kentuckiana hosts our Winter Wonderland for families staying with us over the holiday season. Parents have the opportunity to “shop” for gifts to give to their children and loved ones, helping the added stress and expense of holiday shopping. You can help us stock the Winter Wonderland by shopping off our holiday wish list. Donations can be dropped off at our House downtown, 550 S. First Street, Louisville, KY 40202. You can also have items shipped directly to the House.
Volunteers are the heart of our House. Volunteers during the holidays help make our House feel like a “home-away-from-home” for the many families that will stay with us throughout November and December. Click below to learn more about the different activities you can get involved in!
Sponsor A Family
You can help families stay close to their loved ones and celebrate the holiday season together by sponsoring a family’s stay, or a portion of their stay. It costs us $108 a night to host a family at our Ronald McDonald House. The average length of stay for families is 8.5 nights, equating to $918. All programs and services are free of charge to families. Help give the gift of togetherness and sponsor a family’s stay today!
12 Days of Giving
Our 12 Days of Giving has ended! We are so grateful for the support our community showed our families during this campaign. You can still give back this holiday season by giving a donation to help keep families together when they need it most.

Recycle for RMHC
Donate Your Vehicle: Running or not, donated cars, trucks, boats, and RVs have the power to bring hundreds and sometimes even thousands of dollars to the mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kentuckiana (RMHCK). Donating is easy, the pick-up is free, and RMHCK will use the proceeds from the sale to continue to provide the home and support that allows families to stay together while they focus on the healing of their sick children at a critical time.
Collect Pull Tabs: Collecting pull tabs (or pop-tabs) is an easy and fun way to raise awareness about Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kentuckiana (RMHCK) and support the families we serve. Every time you pull a tab off, it gives you the opportunity to explain to those around you why you save those little pieces of aluminum.
