Ronald McDonald House Charities
We are excited to announce a new partnership here at Nora’s Nursery with the Ronald McDonald House Chapter in Toronto, Canada.
Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is an organization that is very close to our family’s heart. When Greyson, our first child, was born, we spent the first few weeks after his birth in the NICU at SickKids Hospital in Toronto. This was an emotional roller coaster for our family. We were excited to have our first child but stressed and anxious as our son was being cared for. Most of the time we spent there was in between visiting our son and the Ronald McDonald Family Room in SickKids. Here we met families from all over North America in similar or even more difficult situations than ours. Our experience there left us with a desire and need to give back to a place that supported us through one of the most difficult times of our life. We will never forget the kind staff, comforting environment that resembled a home, and a place to connect with other families going through similar challenges. We will forever be grateful and in debt to the RMHC for their hospitality.
Since 1981, RMHC Toronto has been a place to call home for families with seriously ill children undergoing treatment. The most important thing to parents is staying by their child’s side every step of the way. In order for families to access the medical care their child needs, they often have to travel a great distance from home. RMHC Toronto offers a clean and safe place to sleep, cook a meal and recharge for difficult days ahead.
With help from donations, they are able to offer families:
- A place to sleep
- Meals and snacks
- Significant financial savings
- A community of support
- Fun activities for school, camp and other programming
Now during your check out on Nora’s Nursery site you have the option to add a donation to your purchase. Nora’s will be matching all donations made on our site. 100% of donations will go to RMHC Toronto - Nora’s Nursery will not be retaining any of the funds raised.
In addition we will be donating new diapers to families staying at RMHC with young children.
