Ronald McDonald House Charities of Inland NW

Help Keep Families Close

“I have truly loved being at the Ronald McDonald House. It fills my heart up seeing all those lovely little faces running all over the place. Knowing that most of them feel awful most, of the time; but somehow, they always seem to have big smiles on their faces.” - Alissa Dillon, RMHC INW Volunteer

Our volunteers are the heart and hands of our House. They give families with critically ill or injured children the opportunity to spend more time caring for their child. Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Inland Northwest (RMHC INW) is expanding from housing 22 families to 56 families at our Spokane family campus and we can use your help now more than ever. Your support is needed to help with the ongoing operation of these very special homes.

Prepare homemade meals for our families

After a long day at the hospital, there’s nothing more appreciated than a home-cooked meal. Get together with friends, family or co-workers to plan a menu and prepare a comforting meal for our families. We provide the kitchen; you provide the food. Whether a one-time event, or a monthly date, we invite you to come to the House and share your culinary skills with our families
