Double your donation to the Building Hope Fund! 

In light of recent news regarding COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) in Alabama, we are asking for donations of essential items used in our House. Donations of essential items will ensure our families are provided for during this difficult time.

Until further notice, we are temporarily suspending donation intake of non-essential items such as pop tabs and toys.

How to collect and donate Wish List items

  • Purchase at your preferred grocery or retail store and drop off at our House 7 days a week, no appointment necessary.
  • Purchase items online through our Amazon Wish List. Make that donation go further by shopping our Wish List on smile.amazon.com! It’s the same Amazon you know with a big difference — Amazon will donate a portion of your purchase total to RMHCA!
  • Host a Wish List Drive with friends, family and coworkers! This is a fun way to collect items for RMHCA and you can even make it a team competition to see who can collect the most (red vs blue or Alabama vs Auburn).

Please note: Due to the health concerns of the families, we can only accept new, unexpired items and we cannot accept stuffed animals. If you would like to donate toys, please contact Director of Family Programming April Dickerson by email or at 205-638-7254. Ronald McDonald House is a NON-DENOMINATIONAL organization. We hope you’ll understand that we cannot accept any items that are religious in nature.

If you have any questions regarding our Wish List,  please contact us at 205-638-7255. Thank you for your support!
