Takeaway Bags

Cincinnati’s Ronald McDonald House eases the stress of families from around the world with critically ill children by providing them with all the comforts of home. Their days at the hospital are long and trying, but YOU can help give them energy through one of the two options below!

Option 1: Families Fill

Help our guest families fill bags with their favorite snacks. Bring snacks (either from the list below or your favorite items) and either paper or clear, sealable plastic bags to our House. Please feel free to decorate your bags! We will put your bags and donated items out for our families to fill on their way to their appointments.

Option 2: Pre-Pack

Using either paper or clear, sealable plastic bags, add at least three items from the list below, along with a napkin and any plastic ware needed. Label each bag with the date they were packaged. Feel free to decorate the bags!

Delivering Your Items

Visit our House any day between 9 AM and 9 PM to deliver your items. If you would like a tour when you visit, please call 513.559.4600 to set this up before you arrive.

Individuals may earn four hours of community service for either option; simply bring your form with you when you deliver your bags. Thank you for providing healthy, store-bought items that will give our families the energy they need to care for their children during long days at the hospital.

Please note that if we receive an abundance of takeaway bags in a short period, we will share them with other nonprofits who support people in need. This ensures your donations are used in a timely manner by those who need them most.
