Show Us Your Socks!
Did you know March 21 is also one of several National Crazy Socks day? RMHC-OKC would love for you to rock your socks for families on March 21 by wearing your favorite pair of crazy socks and taking a photo in support of our mission. Make sure to post your photo and use #keepingfamiliesclose #RMHCOKC #RMHCOKCDayofGiving #rockyoursocks #rockyoursocksforfamilies #iwearcrazysocksforRMHCOKC #crazysocks
Each of our guest rooms have two queen beds, a private bathroom, desk and closet, much like you would see in a hotel room.
The dining area provides several places for families to come together and enjoy a home cooked meal provided by our guest chefs.
The lounge area provides a comfortable place for families to sit and relax, play board games, do puzzles, or even computer work.
When families arrive at the house and are celebrating a special occasion such as a birthday, children and/or parents can "shop" for that special something.
Our playroom is great for our guest families. Children can play with their siblings or make new friends with other guests.
What does Ronald McDonald House Charities® do?
While dealing with the uncertainly of illness or injury, parents of critically ill and injured children are often reluctant to leave the hospital. Ronald McDonald House Charities® Okahoma City provides a home-away-from-home for families who have a sick or injured child receiving medical care in the Oklahoma City area at NO COST to the family.
The Ronald McDonald House® at Oklahoma Children's Hospital provides 40 private rooms for families and is just steps away from the hospital. The House is connected by a skywalk to Oklahoma Children’s Hospital and has laundry facilities, a large kitchen, play area, living areas, and a salon.
The Ronald McDonald Family Room® is located on the 6th Floor of Oklahoma Children’s Hospital at The OU Medical Center. It is a special place where families who live in the local area, as well as families who have traveled long distances and may be staying at the Ronald McDonald House, can rest while staying close to their hospitalized child.
The Ronald McDonald Family Room offers a comfortable home-like setting including a living room area with a television, a kitchen stocked with snacks, showers and a laundry facility. The Ronald McDonald Family Room also has a quiet room for conversation and phone calls in addition to computers to stay in touch with families, friends and workplace responsibilities.
All of these amenities are provided at NO COST to the family.
