Welcome to our Give to the Max Day page!  We're Ronald McDonald House Charities, Upper Midwest based in Minneapolis and for 42 years we have provided complimentary food, shelter, comfort and love to families battling a child's health crisis. We have four locations in the Twin Cities and opened our fifth location, Ronald McDonald House Northland, in Duluth in February 2021.   

We're proud to share that our doors remained open to families with sick kids every day of the pandemic, despite having to pause our robust volunteer program in March 2020. Donations made during Give to the Max Day will be used to meet the essential daily needs of families with seriously ill and injured children, including meals, lodging and supportive programming. Gifts of any size are appreciated and will be used to support our expanded meal program that now includes three meals and snacks every day.  

Our mission is to provide a caring and comfortable home-away-from-home that keeps families together and reduces stress during a child's serious illness.
Our services include:   

  • Beautiful private rooms for day-use and overnight stays
  • Complimentary meals, snacks, and the use of kitchen facilities
  • Comfortable, quiet spaces to rest and regroup
  • Activities and services to support caregivers' health and wellness
  • Age-appropriate programming for all family members, including an onsite K12 school  and after-school and summer programs
  • Everyday essentials, including toiletries, laundry supplies and facilities,  and more

Families are never charged for our services, no matter the length of their stay.  Moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas and other caregivers regularly tell us that by taking care of the little things, we enable them to focus on the most important thing of all.  Their child.
