The Ronald McDonald House of Memphis (RMHM) was the first housing facility built specifically to house families of St. Jude Children’s Research
Hospital. Ronald McDonald homes are now known as a true home away from home for countless patients and families across the United States.
Since opening in 1991, the Ronald McDonald House Charities has housed more than 9,400 families from nearly every state and 45 countries. The
RMHM can give a family more time with their sick child, which means more hugs, more kisses and more “I love yous.” Together, Sky High and the
RMHM believe that families are stronger when they are together, and their presence helps a sick child cope better and heal faster.
Families who stay at the RMHM stay completely free of charge. The doors are open to every patient of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,
regardless of religion, ethnicity, race, gender, national origin and age.
The RMHM is an independent, community sponsored nonprofit organization who depends on third-party donors, like Sky High. Sky High is the largest
third-party donor that has donated to the Ronald McDonald House in the last 20 years.
Each year Sky High donates $350,000 to the Ronald McDonald House of Memphis. This has helped duct cleaning, ice machines, equipment maintenance,
new digital bulletin boards, new bedroom furniture, 120 new bedspreads, generators, family field trips, bereavement support and more.
