Adopt-a-Room

Ronald McDonald House Charities Dayton

Every year, thousands of families with seriously ill children find much needed comfort at the Dayton Ronald McDonald House and at the Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at Dayton Children’s Hospital and inside Emmett’s Place at Miami Valley Hospital.

Thanks to the generosity of the Dayton and surrounding communities, we provide comfortable bedrooms, quiet spaces where parents can find solitude, play areas where kids and be kids, and dining areas serving home-cooked meals and snacks.

One of the most enduring ways to show your support and generosity to these families is to name a space in either the House or in one of our two Family Rooms.

Our families need your help. As medical bills pile up, most of our families cannot afford to stay in a hotel for days, weeks or months. We request a $15 donation per night, but no family is ever turned away due to inability to pay. Our actual cost is $150 per room, per night.

We need your help in providing community, comfort, and hope. 

For more information about the Adopt-A-Room program, contact Amanda Burks, our Development Director, at [email protected] or 937-224-0047 x 32.

Consider a Gift of Honor

Room sponsorship is a thoughtful way to recognize friends, family, or business associates on birthdays, anniversaries, or other special occasions. It is also a meaningful way to pay loving tribute to a deceased relative or friend.
