    Donate to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western New York

    The Buffalo Santa Stampede is accepting donations towards the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western New York (RMHC of WNY).

    RMHC of WNY is a proud Chapter of the national and international network of Ronald McDonald House Charities. For over 35 years, RMHC of WNY has served more than 21,000 families from Western New York, surrounding states and outside the USA.  They believe that “home” is more than four walls and a roof over your head. The Buffalo Ronald McDonald House is a safe haven that provides all the comforts of home, plus the compassion and hospitality of staff, volunteers, and other families — all just minutes away from the hospital. RMHC of WNY also provide programs within the hospital. Hospital Programs bring the Ronald McDonald House signature hospitality to John R. Oishei Children's Hospital enabling families to experience some restorative time for themselves without having to step too far away from their child’s bedside.
