Chapter Community Outreach
The PNW SGMP Chapter is proud to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Washington & Alaska for the 2018 - 2019 year.
Members are invited to bring items to donate to chapter meetings for the Ronald McDonald House. For their donation, members will receive a free raffle ticket for that meetings drawing!
In November & December, please consider bringing donations of cake or cookie mixes, gingerbread house kits, decorating supplies, etc. to help families celebrate the holiday season at their home-away-from-home.
When a child is seriously ill, families’ lives are turned upside down. Many families travel hundreds of miles, and spend weeks or months getting treatment – because nothing is more important than getting their child the treatment he or she needs. The Ronald McDonald House is a home away from home for families while their children undergo treatment at Seattle Children’s Hospital or the Alaska Native Medical Center (ANMC).
With our facilities in Anchorage and Seattle, we can accommodate up to 114 families. In addition to providing housing, our facilities offer stocked common pantries, laundry machines, linens and towels, toiletries, paper products, and all the other items that make a House a home. At both houses, we also offer meals through our volunteer dinner groups, activities and outings for kids, visits from certified therapy dogs, and many other services. The House is so much more than a place to stay; it is a community.
