Help the Ronald McDonald House Get New Washers, Dryers, and Dishwashers

Every family does a lot of laundry, and a family with a sick child does even more. Since we house 80 families a night, our machines are in constant motion to keep everything fresh and clean. Something as simple as a fresh blanket or a warm pair of PJs out of the dryer are not only essential to that families that stay with us, but also one of the little comforts of home we provide.

Due to general wear and tear that comes with this level of use , we need to replace some of our appliances. If we can raise $10,000, our friends at Arnold's Appliance have generously agreed to match it with $5,500 in discounts, allowing us to purchase and install everything we need. So spread the word to your friends, neighbors, and coworkers. We've got loads of hope in you!

We encourage you to donate at one of our fun donor levels:

  • Welcome to the Fold: $25
  • Soaking Up the Love: $50
  • Lighten the Load: $100
  • Rinse to the Rescue: $250
  • Spin Our Socks Off: $500
  • Out of this Whirled: $1000


We'll be updating the handy Laundry-o-meter by hand every time we reach a new level: look for changes when we reach $1,000, $2,500, $5,000, $7,500, and $10,000. Or you can see our total that updates live in the blue bar below!

Thanks to everyone who donated, we have now gone over our goal of $10,000 for new appliances at the House! We are so grateful for your generosity and help!


Our appliance drive has completed! We raised over $10,000 in just six days, thanks to you! We so appreciate your generosity. Join our email list and to make sure you’ll get our follow up email when the new appliances get installed later this month:
