Ways to help
HELP US BRING THE COMFORTS OF HOME TO OUR NEW FAMILY ROOM
Opening soon at The Townsville Hospital, this space is designed to keep families together and functioning while they care for their sick child. Our Family Room is a place of respite away from clinical areas for families to share a meal, shower, wash clothes or catch up on a few hours sleep, while still remaining close to their child's bedside. We are raising much-needed funds to bring all the comforts of home to this room.
Many people choose to support us by purchasing items for the House or families to help make life that little bit easier. We rely on the generous support of the North Queensland community to provide those extra creature comforts that are often overlooked when a family is forced to devote all their time and energy to a sick child.
Ronald McDonald House North Queensland is always happy to receive support from the community, however there are times when we cannot accept donations of a certain kind.
WHAT WE CAN ACCEPT:
Individually wrapped condiments eg. Sugar, butter, tea bags, biscuits.
Non-perishable food items eg. rice, juice, cereal.

New, unworn baby, child and adult clothing and underwear. Please check with us first for sizes most in need before making your donation.
WHAT WE CAN’T ACCEPT:
Perishable food eg. meat and poultry.
NO USED goods eg. clothing, toys, games, bed linen, furniture (except books in excellent condition).
