Comfort & Joy


Families staying at our Stanford and San Francisco Ronald McDonald Houses rely on our community to meet every day needs.

Our year-round Comfort & Joy drives create easy opportunities to support families in need! 



Back to School Backpack Drive!

Did you know our Ronald McDonald House School helped 120 patients and siblings keep pace with their studies last year?

This August, class will be back in session for our third year of full time K-12 operations - creating a community of fun, learning and normalcy for an anticipated 200 students to earn course credit, build relationships with peers as classmates, and stay close to necessary treatments and their loving families during the 2019-20 academic year!

You can help set our students up for success! Click below to donate new backpacks and lunchboxes to our Back to School Drive now through August 5!
