Share a Night
When you join the Share a Night campaign, you make a family’s stay at the Ronald McDonald House possible. At checkout, families are asked to contribute just $20 per night toward their stay – a fraction of the $99 it costs to operate a room. But thanks to gifts like yours, no family is ever turned away due to their inability to pay. During the holidays, it becomes more clear how precious time together with your family is. Your gift to the Ronald McDonald House of Rochester’s Share a Night campaign ensures families don’t have to worry about where they’ll stay tonight, they’ll focus on healing together.
