Ronald McDonald House Club is a newer club on campus that is working to spread the word about our cause! We work with Ronald McDonald House Charities to support the families of children receiving long-term medical treatment by providing them housing free of charge along with a place for them to cook, and their children to play. In order to help this cause we work both on and off campus. On campus, we organize fundraisers, pop-tab collections, and host events and monthly meetings to spread the word about our club. Off campus, we volunteer at the house to make meals for families staying there, make crafts or do activities with them, or simply talk and connect to them to let them know that they are supported through their struggles.

Recently, RMHC has been working to get pop tab collection started in the dorms, and is doing a campus wide collection until May 4th. We also worked to raise money through tip jar collections and pizza delivery so we could cook a meal for the kids and their families at the house. We were able to make enough money to feed over 60 people at the house a delicious Italian dinner! While it has been a great year for RMHC, we are already starting our plans to have an even better year next year. Our rising president, Erin Riley, is working to make sure RMHC continues to grow as an organization and do the greatest work for the most people it can both on and off campus through Ronald McDonald House Charities.
