Share A Meal - Ronald McDonald Family Room - Fort Smith

Save to Favorites

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Arkoma, Inc.

  • 4 people are interested

The Ronald McDonald Family Room offers dinner every evening to visiting families. Community members and groups have certain nights each week/month to bring dinner. At times, this is not always available, so our staff and volunteers help provide these meals. You can help relieve some of those costs by signing up to participate in our Share A Meal Program. Dinners should feed approximately 15-20 people and can be homemade, purchased pre-made for a store or restaurant or delivered to the Family Room. Dinner is served around 6 PM every evening.

Our Share A Meal Program is an opportunity to come alongside families in a time of need and show them how much they are cared for.

The mission of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Arkoma is "to create, find and support programs that improve the health and well-being of children in Western Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma". One of the many ways we accomplish this is by providing a "home away from home" for families with children being treated at Mercy Hospital in Fort Smith,. Here are are able to care for the patients family, allowing them to remain nearby while their child recovers. We provide snacks and drinks, shower and laundry facilities, and a variety of relaxing and entertaining choices for their families to enjoy. We also offer four overnight bedrooms to allow families to remain close while their child is being treated. All of this at no cost to the families - thanks to our generous donors.

If you are interested in signing up for our Share A Meal Program or have any other questions, call 479-314-8030 or send email to rmfrfsm@rmhcofarkoma.org

Thanks!
