Adopt a Room – RMH Providence

The Adopt a Room program offers a yearlong sponsorship of one of the bedrooms at RMH Providence. Adopt a Room sponsors have an incredible impact on the families who call their room “Home” while their child is hospitalized or receives medical treatment.

Your sponsorship helps to underwrite the cost of their stay enabling us to serve all families, regardless of their ability to pay. There are a variety of ways to Adopt a Room.

If you are interested in this program, please click here for our sponsorship options or contact Nicole Anderson.

A sincere thank you goes to our current Adopt A Room Sponsors.

Adopt a Family

The Adopt a Family program provides generous donors with an opportunity to fund the expenses associated with a family’s stay. Without RMH Providence and RMH Boston Harbor, families would sleep in hospital waiting areas, in their cars or have to turn to local hotels with an average cost ranges from $154- $250 per night. It costs approximately $150 per night to provide services for a family of 4.

When you Adopt a Family, you help provide all the care and comfort needed for families to focus their energy on their sick child. Your donation directly impacts the families who call the Ronald McDonald House “home” while their child receives medical treatment. Your generosity, at any level, is valuable and appreciated!

  • Adopt a Weekend
  • $300.00

Pop Tabs

Collecting Pop Tabs is an easy way to help the House. In fact, it is a great way to teach kids about philanthropy and the importance of recycling, while they raise funds to help children and their families at the same time.

We collect pop tabs because they are pure high-quality aluminum, unlike cans, which consist of aluminum and other alloys. Tabs are also easier to store and more sanitary than whole cans.

When you are ready to deliver your pop tabs call us at (401) 274-4447.
