Friends Program

Your Community Making a Difference

You can make a profound impact on the lives of seriously ill children by establishing a Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio Friends Chapter. While children from your hometown receive treatment at central Ohio area hospitals, their families can stay right across the street at the Columbus Ronald McDonald House.

The Friends Program provides individuals an opportunity to meet new people while making a difference in the lives of the children and families staying at the Columbus Ronald McDonald House. All it takes is a group of individuals with the common goal of keeping families close in one of their deepest times of need. Whether inspired by personal experience or compassion, your Friends Chapter can make an impact by raising funds for the Columbus Ronald McDonald House, which is the largest of its kind in the world. With 137 guest rooms, the House is in a unique position to help thousands of families every year. With that opportunity comes the challenge of providing the funds needed to provide this wonderfully necessary service.
