How you help Each year, more than 1,500 volunteers and 6,000 volunteer hours are needed to assist with events and help at the house. The Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Michigan is able to serve hundreds of families each year through the generously of communities, organizations, businesses, individuals and volunteers. Your support will help us provide a caring, loving home-away-from-home for the hundreds of families who visit Lansing to seek the very best medical treatments for their ill children.
About us Too often, parents of ill children are forced to sleep in waiting rooms or cramped hospital rooms, bathe in public restroom sinks and eat out of vending machines while their child is hospitalized. To help these parents, community leaders, healthcare professionals and advocates in Lansing, Mich. dreamed of opening a place these families could call their home-away-from-home. In June 2000, after years of research, planning, fundraising and designing, the Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Michigan opened their doors to families, partners and donors in Greater Lansing. Our House provides families with a place they can have home-cooked meals, a place for siblings to play and a comfortable space to sleep close to the hospital room where they spend countless hours with a sick child. Conveniently located across from Sparrow Hospital, families are able to stay close to their children while they are healing.
