Our Wish List items are often ones that we go through the most and need replenishing on a regular basis, or are major items we would like to have but cannot afford to purchase. On our Wish List, we have highlighted the items we need most in blue, as well as some more expensive “Big Shoes” items that we are in need of!

Additionally, below you will find our Special Bags Wish List, which includes items we put in our Newborn Care Packages, Hospitality Bags and Sibling Bags.

If you have any questions about any of these lists, please contact Family Services Manager, Laura Schenk, at 414-475-5333.

Supporters who have used the Wish List in the past have simply purchased items while out shopping for themselves or have had fun with “Wish List Showers” or Birthday Parties.

Please note that we only accept new items in original packaging. Please see our Donation Acceptance Policy below for more information.

For an accessible version of any of the above documents, please email us at info@rmhc-easternwi.org

Consider purchasing items from our Wish Lists via Amazon Smile!

Remember to select Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin so we get 0.5% of your purchase back as a donation through Amazon.


The Magic Room

Magic Room 2019The Ronald McDonald House accepts new toys throughout the year to distribute to our guest families.

At the Ronald McDonald House Eastern Wisconsin, a small token is a big deal. With token in hand, families get to visit the Magic Room – the most magical room in the House, filled with floor-to-ceiling shelves of toys, games, and, of course, books! Under the forest canopy, children get to pick which of the very special items they choose to make their own. Last year the House provided more than 2,800 family stays. Each of these families visit the Magic Room while on their medical journey, selecting toys and books that provide distraction, comfort, and joy when so many things are out of their control. The Magic Room is stocked solely through the generosity of our donors- like you! Will you help us share the magic with our families?
