Wish List

Donating items is a great way to help us help families provide the comforts of home so they can focus on caring for their children. Choose from our Wish List below. Our List includes items that we currently need to serve our families; items just like you use at home.

For the health and safety of our families, only new and unexpired items will be accepted. Environmentally friendly products are appreciated.

When you donate items to the RMHC of WNY, you are helping to make families as comfortable as possible as they deal with the stress of having a sick child receiving treatment in our local hospitals.

All donated items should be delivered to the Ronald McDonald House, 780 West Ferry Street, Buffalo, New York. Call Lynn at 883-1177, ext. 255 if you have any questions and to arrange delivery of items.
