Dig Life in the Secret Garden

June 30th, 2017

The sounds of the multi-level Healing Waters, birds splashing there, the whiz of hummingbirds, the rustle of leaves and grasses, all tune us into the world of nature. Smelling Hosta blossoms and roses along the paths, finding a sprig of Apple Mint or “Phenomenal” Lavender makes us hold our heads up high in appreciation of the moment. Some garden aromas…

The Gift of Green Goodness

June 27th, 2017

I haven’t always been a vegetable lover. If you had asked me 15 years ago what bok choy was, I would have replied “bok chwat?” However, as I age, I find myself wandering through the Pick n Save produce department marveling at the colors, smells, and shapes of vegetables and thinking about where and how they grow. More importantly, I…

Kids Kitchen

June 20th, 2017

In my 5 ½ years working at the Ronald McDonald House, I have seen many things.  I have seen thousands of families walk through our doors and stay with us – some for only a few nights, some for many months.  Their days are long as hours are spent in the hospital, supporting their sick child, providing a hand to…

Comfort of a Good Night’s Sleep

June 15th, 2017

The families at the Ronald McDonald House are strong, persistent, courageous warriors that endure long days of caring for and supporting their sick loved one. The importance of sleep is vital for them to be able to continue providing brave, attentive bedside support at the hospital each strenuous day. RMHC Eastern Wisconsin is receiving 68 new Tempur-Pedic mattresses from Tempur Sealy International Inc., on Wednesday, June…

Happy Wheels Cart Rolls over to Children’s Hospital

June 8th, 2017

Have you ever had to stay in the same place all day long, without getting to move around or talk to someone new? If you never get to sit back and relax for a whole day, it may sound perfect! But what if you had to do that every day, over and over, without an end in sight? Many families…

RMHC Staff Post: Sarah Buchanan, Family Services Manager

May 12th, 2017

As the mother to one four year old daughter, Charlotte, and another bundle of joy on the way, I am able to honestly say that parenting is one of most eye opening and difficult challenges that I have ever faced. Children are often our teachers, best friends, and greatest challengers. They learn from us and test us, sometimes frustrating us…

RMHC Reflections

May 4th, 2017

Having the opportunity to work in the Ronald McDonald House of Eastern Wisconsin over the last few months has been an eye-opening experience. Before starting my internship, I knew about some basic information about RMHC and their mission to keep families close. What I didn’t understand, but would come to learn over the next few months, is how a small…

Happy Volunteer Appreciation Week!

April 27th, 2017

When you take a minute to ask our volunteers why they choose the Ronald McDonald House to be the place they donate their time and talents, you’ll get a variety of answers. Some say after they retired they felt a need to do something more, some feel fulfilled by giving back to an organization that once helped them or a…
