Items can be dropped off during the Family Room’s regular hours (9:00am – 9:00pm, 7 days a week).

Sign up to provide a meal

Feeding families with sick children at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center is a huge part of what we do at the Ronald McDonald Family Room. We provide three meals a day to families in the pediatric areas of the hospital. In order to provide these meals, we rely on support from the community.

You can help us ensure families are well fed and supported by sending meals to the Family Room. You can order from local restaurants or even provide gift cards, a great way to support local families. Sign up to provide a meal here.

Volunteer opportunities

All in-person volunteer shifts are currently suspended.

Notes of encouragement

Even the smallest gestures can go a long way to make a family feel a little less alone during their child’s medical fight. A great way to show your support is by decorating notes of encouragement and adding ChapStick or lotion for us to hand out to families.
