How You Can Help

Donate Amazon Smile

When you sign up for Amazon Smile and select us as your charity of choice, Amazon will donate a percentage of all your sales to RMHC of Amarillo. You can shop online, while also helping families with sick children. THAT really makes us smile!

Host A 3rd Party Fundraiser

Each year, a number of groups get together and collaborate with us to host their own fundraising event to support Ronald McDonald House Charities of Amarillo! That could be a poker run, 5k, dodgeball tournament, or even a magic show! If you are interested in hosting a third-party fundraiser to benefit RMHC of Amarillo, contact Luke at luke@rmhcofamarillo.org or call (806) 358-8177

Donate Your Birthday

Did you know you can share your birthday festivities with RMHC of Amarillo? When it gets to be your special time of year, you can select us as your charity of choice on Facebook and host a birthday fundraiser on your page. What a great way of bringing people together to celebrate and support  families of children who must travel to Amarillo to receive medical care!

“Pull Together” For RMHCA

Each year, businesses, schools, individuals, and other groups will collect HUNDREDS of pounds of aluminum pull tabs, and donate them to the Ronald McDonald House in Amarillo to be recycled for extra funds. Not only are you helping to keep the tabs out of our area landfills and able to be reinvented as something new and useful, but it also helps to provide comfort, care, and support to families of sick and injured children. That’s what we call a win-win!

Volunteer Opportunities

As a small, locally operated nonprofit organization, we are ALWAYS in need of generous folks in the community that want to help us give back! Whether that’s hosting a “supply drive” with toys and items from our Wish List, helping with events, sewing baby blankets, or working volunteer shifts at the House or Ronald McDonald Family Room…we simply could not do what we do without the support of our wonderful volunteers! For more information on how you can get involved, contact Jan Plequette at jan@rmhcofamarillo.org or call (806) 358-8177.

Matching Gifts

Many companies recognize the helpful hearts of their employees, and are willing to match gifts made to their employees’ most beloved charities and nonprofit organizations. Next time you make a gift, ask your boss if your company has a matching program that could help grow your gift! You can also include Ronald McDonald House in your will estate. For more information on estate gifts, contact our Executive Director Shelley Cunningham at shelley@rmhcofamarillo.org or call (806) 358-8177.
