The Ronald McDonald House entered into an agreement with Merchandise Collection Services based in Dallas, Texas late last year. They place collection boxes for us in businesses throughout the valley, and also collect the contents. We are paid based on the amount of goods collected. In a short time, this has become a very important and welcome source of income for our charity.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Rio Grande Valley provides a home-away-from-home for families of seriously ill children receiving medical care at area hospitals. We provide a guest room, common areas including a kitchen, laundry room, children’s playroom and two living areas, as well as emotional support during a difficult time. Our families’ needs are simple, but profound “ and we do the best we can to make a difficult time in their lives just a little easier.
- Women’s, men’s and children’s clothing in good wearable condition.
- Shoes, linens and household items.
- All items must fit in the collection box.
Call 1-800-MCS-6051 to report collection box damage.
