MEMO FROM RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) impacts the United States and countries across the world, we would like to assure you that the health and safety of our families, staff, volunteers, and communities remains our top priority.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California (RMHCSC) continues to follow the guidance and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the California Department of Public Health, World Health Organization (WHO), and our local partnering hospitals. We are closely monitoring and responding to the outbreak as circumstances change at a rapid rate. RMHCSC has put in place a number of policies to limit the risk and spread of COVID-19 in order to protect our families and our stakeholders.
At this time, our House programs have closed communal spaces for families and temporarily suspended in-person gatherings, including all volunteer activities inside our buildings. We have suspended our Hospitality Cart Program at CHOC Children’s and have offered our Ronald McDonald Family Rooms as rest stations for hospital workers, physicians, and nurses.
Our team is taking a proactive approach to ensure the safety, health, and comfort of the vulnerable population we serve, in addition to all stakeholders and staff. We will continue to monitor and react to the spread of COVID-19 based on the recommendations of our health care partners and health authorities.
RMHCSC is working diligently to continue to fulfill our mission and meet the needs of each individual family under these challenging circumstances. As a result, we are continuing to request the support and dedication of our community partners. If you would like to support families at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California by donating meals or through any other capacity, please Contact Us Here.
We thank you for your support.
