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.
All in-person volunteer shifts are currently suspended through May 31, 2021.
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.
