Help restock our pantry

The RMHCA pantry is getting low on pantry staples and snacks! Can you help?

Providing snacks, pantry staples and grab and go food items for our guest families takes a huge financial and emotional burden off their shoulders. When a child is sick in the hospital, the last thing parents think about is feeding themselves or grocery shopping.

By making a Pantry Restock donation, you can give parents more time to care for their child and their own well-being. Ask your friends, neighbors, coworkers or faith group to contribute too! This is a perfect opportunity for groups to show their support for guest families.

With up to 76 families in our care each night, we would be so grateful if you would donate some of the items we need.
