About Adopt a Room

When you Adopt a Room at Ronald McDonald House BC, you give the gift of comfort to families staying far away from home, providing a familiar, welcoming space to come home to after a long day of treatment. Ronald McDonald House BC depends on community supporters like you to serve up to 2500 families a year.

Why it’s Important to Give

When a child is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, their family needs to be by their side to support them during treatment. BC Children’s Hospital serves sick children throughout all of British Columbia and Yukon, meaning many families are faced with long distance travel and expensive accommodation. Often one or both parents are forced to take a leave of absence or quit their job altogether to focus on their child. By providing a home away from home, Ronald McDonald House BC eases the financial and emotional burden on families, allowing them to focus on their child’s treatment and on healing together.

The Adopt a Room program is an annual commitment of $5,000 over three or five years. Common area rooms are also available; please contact Sarah Catliff if you would like to know more about these opportunities.

We want to help ensure that families are comfortable while staying at Ronald McDonald House BC and adopting a room is one of the best ways to do that. We have been supporting Ronald McDonald House BC for several years and we are excited to continue our support with the new House.”

Alan Gozda, McDonald’s Owner, Kamloops, BC

Adopting a room at Ronald McDonald House® BC was one of the most fulfilling contributions I have ever made. I know that the money I donated is helping a family with a seriously ill child stay together in the comforts of a supportive, loving environment.”

Adopt a Family

When you support our Adopt a Family program, your support helps offset the cost of a family’s stay at the House. It costs Ronald McDonald House BC $75 for one family to stay for one night, while families are asked to contribute only $12 a night. Your meaningful donation bridges this funding gap and gives our families a caring place to call home while their seriously ill child receives treatment.
