BENEFITING: RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE OF NEW YORK
Ronald McDonald House New York provides a temporary “home-away-from-home” for pediatric cancer patients and their families.
Our families have to travel back and forth to our hospital partners every day, sometimes more than once a day! Our Hope Mobiles get our families where they need to go without worrying about navigating New York City's public transit system or spending money on taxis. This allows them to focus on what's important: spending more quality time with their child.
As you can imagine, driving on New York City streets 24/7 takes a toll on a van! We are raising funds to replace our vans with two brand new Hope Mobiles. In addition, we would like to purchase a cargo truck to assist in our expanding Hospital Outreach program, allowing us to help more families other than those who are able to stay with us. We just started our new "Happy Wheels" Coffee Cart program to bring a moment of respite to families on the pediatric floors of our hospital partners. We will use our new cargo van to transport supplies (coffee, healthy snacks, etc.) to refill our coffee carts.
We hope that you will donate to this cause and help our families navigate the City as well as bring smiles to everyone on the pediatric floor at our hospital partners. Thank you for your support!
