365 Giving Tree Program

There’s something special and incredibly significant about a family tree. Its roots are firmly planted, and its branches vary in age. Some branches are young, and new, while others have been there a while and serve as the tree’s strength and foundation.

At the Ronald McDonald House, we too have a family tree. Its branches hold the leaves of the people that make it possible to keep families close. Each leaf indicates a donation given for a family to stay near their hospitalized child. Every year, we work to add new leaves, to strengthen what we do each day.

A $365 gift to RMHC South Dakota is incredibly significant. Though it may seem small when broken down (just $1 per day for the year!), it’s worth is invaluable! The value of a family stay is about $50 per night, so your gift provides a temporary home for a little over a week—a common length of stay for a family dealing with pediatric cancer chemotherapy treatments. Or, accident recovery, an unexpected NIC-U stay, and much more.

We hope you’ll choose to partner with us!
