The stress and uncertainty we are all experiencing right now reminds us of what families with seriously ill children face on any given day. As always, our focus at the House is supporting our families as best we can, not only for right now – but as we look ahead to the coming months.
Your generosity means so much. It helps us continue housing and supporting families during this outbreak. Because we’ve had to close our Houses to visitors, and to the majority of our volunteers, all the wonderful things volunteers do for our families – like prepare and serve meals, run activity groups, and host movie nights – have stopped.
Here are some of the ways donations have allowed us to continue comfort and caring support during this time:
- Meals: In lieu of our volunteer-based meal programs, donations have allowed us to put out breakfast offerings and sandwiches for lunches. Donors and volunteer groups are helping us bring in boxed meals for dinners.
- Activities: Families are now spending most of their time in their rooms. We are using donations to supply crafts and activity kits to keep kids entertained.
- You can also shop our Amazon Wish List to choose crafts and activities that ship directly to the House.
- Safety and Cleaning: Our facilities team does an amazing job of keeping the House clean for families, but the additional work needed to be done in response to COVID-19 has overwhelmed them. Thanks to donations, we’ve been able to bring in more paid staff to support them and keep our facility safe and healthy for families, staff, and volunteers.
While we can’t predict how long these changes will be in effect, we know RMHC families will need your help all along the way. Can you make a donation to ensure we can meet families’ greatest needs on any given day?
Donations at any level are a big help. Thank you for your continued care, and for being such an important part of our community.
