Ronald McDonald House Charities, Upper Midwest

For 45 years we've provided a caring & comfortable home away from home to families with seriously ill & injured kids.

In 2023, we provided free lodging, meals & more to 5,770 families at our 5 MN locations, 4 in the Twin Cities & RMH Northland in Duluth.

Operating as usual


RMH kids love it when Ziggy's Art Bus pull up to the House for an afternoon of creativity and fun! 🎨 Join their volunteer team for a guaranteed good time. ❤️

Volunteer with Ziggy’s Art Bus at the Ronald McDonald House on the University of Minnesota campus! Volunteer as your schedule allows: once a week, once a month, or once a season! Find more details at or send us a message for more information! 💜


These young ladies, all siblings of sick kids, find normalcy and a community of support at RMH Oak Street's amazing 1-room school 🏫 where they engage in typical school subjects like Art. For Wishlist Weekend, they'd appreciate donations of arts & crafts kits. ➡️ Being far away from home isn't easy, but your generosity is sure to brighten their days. 🦋


Thank you to Visitation School and Convent for purchasing 260 Shamrock Shakes for these lovely lasses and their classmates 🍀 and to the generous McDonald’s of Minnesota and Western Wisconsin owners for donating 25 cents from the sale of each Shamrock Shake and OREO Shamrock McFlurry to RMH, now - March 17th! We encourage you to do your part and order a shake or McFlurry soon! It's a magically delicious way to support RMH families. 💚

The kids staying at RMH-Oak St and Bernie, House Dog for Ronald McDonald House Charities, Upper Midwest enjoyed Shamrock Shakes today in celebration of the kickoff of this year’s promotion: now - March 17th, generous McDonald’s of Minnesota and Western Wisconsin owners will donate 25 cents from the sale of each Shamrock Shake and regular Oreo Shamrock McFlurry to RMH. 💰 Last year this campaign raised $50,000+ for our chapter - talk about a pot of gold! What an easy and delicious way to support RMH families. ☘️💚☘️


Like most people, RMH parents appreciate a hot beverage in the morning, usually with plenty of caffeine. ☕ So for Wishlist Wednesday, we'd appreciate donations of coffee, tea and other morning favorites ➡️ When you help us take care of the little things, we give caregivers the time and space to focus on the big things, like the health and wellbeing of their child. 💗 PS: Feel free to purchase elsewhere and drop them off/ship them to RMHC-UM, 621 Oak St SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414. TY, Wishlist Friends!


With Surly Nation behind us, things are bound to go well. 😎 Excited that Battle of the Breweries moves to Surly Brewing Company this week, with customers & staff collecting pantry items and funds today thru 3/19 for the House that Love Built! The bar has been set high by Fulton Beer w/1,500 items and Excelsior Brewing Company w/700 items & $2,100. Game on, Surly! Trivia Mafia

A recent Cooks for Kids dinner at Gillette Children's took on an international flair with Hans Joakim Lien of Sweden and Njål Glenjen Sørheim of Norway joining Ellyn Murakami and Jackie Adelmann Photography in preparing a pasta bar with 5 topping choices plus salad and a cake. They were "blown away by the beautiful RMH facility and how we love on these families every day." 😍 What a lovely story to end a busy week!

When companies, civic organizations, fraternities, scout troops, teams - really any group - host donation drives on our behalf, the families we serve at our 5 Minnesota locations are the winners! Case in point: these Delta Sigma Pi members who collected $850+ worth of pantry items, paper products and gift cards at a recent conference. Each person made a small donation, and it added up to real support for families dealing with a child's health crisis. It's an easy and impactful way to give back. 😍 To learn more, contact Kelly Hegi at [email protected] or 612-238-8101.


Although they're not full grown, these kids can eat us out of house and home in no time at all - so we'd appreciate donations of cereal and oatmeal ➡️ for Wishlist Wednesday!

Or, purchase them elsewhere and ship them to/drop them off at RMHC-UM, 621 Oak St. SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414. Thanks, friends! 😍
