Giving Programs

Adopt a Room Program

The Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central PA (RMHC-CP) Adopt a Room program allows you, your company or organization to help defray the cost of operating a guest room in our House for one year*. Your donation helps our organization keep families together and near the care and resources, they need as their child receives essential medical care and assures that we can continue to provide our services free of charge. Your gift provides much more than just a roof over our families heads. It helps provide support, home-cooked meals and relief from their stressful situations so they can focus on what matters most – each other.

Benefits of Adopting a Room include:

  • Recognition in newsletters, annual report and on our website

  • Recognition outside guest room

  • Recognition as an Adopt a Room participant in a common area of the RMH

By adopting a room at the Hershey Ronald McDonald House, you will directly impact the lives of families who will call the room home by eliminating many of the financial challenges that come with traveling long distances for medical care.
