Cost-Free Maintenance at the House

To operate our not-for-profit, 10 bedroom House and assist those families who so desperately need our services, the Omaha Ronald McDonald House depends on generous community support in the form of individual funds, corporate sources and the generosity of volunteers to operate the House. If you're a businessperson who believes in the mission of the Omaha Ronald McDonald House, but don't have time to volunteer, there's another important way you can help.

You can provide "services-in-kind." A number of businesses have already signed up to join "Team Ronald". The group is a collaboration of local business people who are dedicated to the upkeep and maintenance of the House by donation of their services. These contributors donate services such as grounds maintenance, House upkeep and equipment service. You too can help maintain "The House that love built".

Steve Nabity of the Ronald McDonald House board says it best: "That way we can provide a loving environment instead of fretting about the plumbing or some other problem."

If you have a service you can donate, please contact Lori Eden by phone at 402-346-9377 X 11 or via e-mail. Our special needs right now are house cleaning, carpet cleaning, furnace-air conditioner maintenance, a locksmith, individuals or businesses to adopt the utilities. 

Other Ways You Can Help

Contributions to the House are greatly appreciated.
