It’s something they see every day – children healing because they’re surrounded by their families. And while RMHC may not be able to make the medicine taste better or erase the pain of a much-needed treatment, they do help lessen the burden for millions of families. Since 1974, their network of local Chapters have been making children happier and healthier by keeping families together – giving them a place to rest and refresh. A place that feels like home. These programs, tailored to meet the urgent needs of each community, can now be found in more than 60 countries and regions across the globe.
One of the best ways to support RMHC families is to help provide a happy, healthy, smooth-running home that’s fully stocked with food, toiletries, cleaning supplies and games. They need a lot of the same items you need at your house, but in larger quantities. The top 5 needs are listed below:
1. Baby Wipes
2. Sturdy paper plates
3. Individually packaged snack cups – like fruit cocktail, jello, etc
4. Paper towels
5. Full size shampoo
