The Ronald McDonald House of SNJ provides a comfortable room for families of pediatric patients in 8 Southern New Jersey Hospitals. We provide a welcome bag for the families and children to help them feel special during stressful times. At the Neonatal Intensive Care Units we need small bags filled with small new baby goodies. At the Pediatric Units we need small bags, boy or girl, with small toys, crayons, books for the patients. How special our guests will feel when then enter the room and are welcomed by a nice surprise made by you or your group. Each room needs 25 bags available all the time, so we would be happy with any help. The rooms are located in AtlantiCare-Mainland and Atlantic City, Capital Health-Trenton, Cooper University-Camden, Kennedy Health-Washington Twp, Shore Memorial-Somers Point, South Jersey Healthcare-Vineland, Virtua-Voorhees and Virtua Memorial-Mt Holly.
