DCH Family Room celebrates 7 years helping families

DHC Family room sitting areaIt’s hard to believe that our DCH Regional Medical Center Ronald McDonald Family Room in Tuscaloosa opened in 2010!

Last year, families used the free amenities 357 times, up from 262 visits in 2015.

While they are there, mom and dad can sit and relax, enjoy a book from the library, watch TV, use the computer or even do a load of laundry.

DHC Family Room PlayroomIn the children’s playroom, the kiddos have books, toys and a TV to enjoy.

The Family Room is also supported by a great network of community members. We often get donations of snacks and pop tabs to help our families.

And when families walk into the Family Room, one of the first things they see is a beautiful cross stitch created by Debbie from Cullman.

You too can help support our DCH Family Room!

Collecting pop tabs or holding a Wish List Drive are two easy ways you, your family or your office can help the DCH Regional Medical Center Ronald McDonald Family Room.

Please mail pop tabs to:

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama

1700 4th Avenue South

Birmingham, AL 35233

If you would like to coordinate a snack donation, please contact Traci Swann at 205-750-5176 or by email at traci.swann@dchsystem.com.
