#GiveJoy | A Season of Giving Campaign
Drop Off your Donations at Ronald McDonald House on Tuesday, December 6th, 7:30 AM – 5:30 PM!
NO need to park and get out of your car: pull up and we’ll unload for you!
Rochester MN Moms Blog is so proud to partner with Ronald McDonald House – Rochester in our #GiveJoy drive.
Moms, we are a powerful group. We have continuously been astounded at the ways you have responded in times of need in our community. This holiday season is no different. Over 100 families will be spending the holidays at the Ronald McDonald House while their child receives life-saving treatment at Mayo Clinic. We have the opportunity to invest into the lives of these families: these moms, these children, these fathers, brothers and sisters. Many of these families will never know Rochester, MN outside of the context of medical treatment and necessity. Let’s take this opportunity to shower these families with blessings as they are at their most vulnerable and scared. We have the real opportunity to #GiveJoy to many and to truly make a difference with our actions this holiday season. As mothers, we look for ways to teach our children about generosity and giving out of a grateful heart to others. As moms, we are looking for ways to give that allows us to involve our children while understanding that we sometimes face limitations in how and when we can serve others. The #GiveJoy drive allows us the opportunity to give within the unique parameters of motherhood.
There are 4 unique ways for you to be involved in our #GiveJoy campaign:
- Purchase items from the Ronald McDonald Season of Giving WishList and drop off at Ronald McDonald House on our #GiveJoy on Tuesday, December 6th from 7:30 AM – 5:30 PM. The Rochester MN Moms Blog team will be there to accept your donations so you don’t even have to get out of your car! You will also receive a little treat to help us express our thanks.
- Purchase from the Ronald McDonald House Amazon Wish-List and have it shipped to the House anytime throughout the holiday season. You can also shop locally at A Child’s Kingdom with their Ronald McDonald Wishlist!
- Participate in a tour! The Ronald McDonald House staff will be available on December 6th to give you and your family a tour of the home. We want you to see how Ronald McDonald House is a place of hope where children are healed and miracles happen. If December 6th doesn’t work for you, please consider scheduling a tour at another time. What a great thing to do together as a family!
- Pack Breakfast Bags! You know how hard it is to get out of the house with your kids in the morning! Now imagine packing everyone up to go the hospital every day for appointments, treatments and hospital visits. Packing Breakfast Bags with your family allows those staying at the Ronald McDonald House to grab a quick and healthy breakfast as they head out the door to their appointments. This is great to do this season, but is actually something you can do all year round!
We can’t wait to see you on Tuesday, December 6th!
