Wish List of Needs

Help Us Fill Our Wish List!

The Ronald McDonald House of Western Michigan serves ill children and their families from all areas of the state, providing them with a warm and caring home-away-from-home 365 days per year.  We have the same needs as you have in your own home...only times 17!


Please consider holding a Wish List drive at work, church or school, or next time you're at the store, consider picking up a little extra of whatever you're getting for yourself to share with the House.  Your kindness will be remembered long after your gift is used. Print our wish list (PDF) or visit our Amazon Wish List to ship items directly to the House! For an accessible version of the wish list, please email Megan Priester at mpriester@rmhwesternmichigan.org.

Items in RED are the most needed items.


Please note:  RMHWM cannot accept donations of used bedding, clothing, stuffed animals, and pillows.  We appreciate your understanding with this.
