Collect new hotel toiletries and donate them for families
When a child has been hurt in an accident or has an acute illness, parents rush to the hospital with only a moment's notice. They often arrive at the hospital without even a toothbrush or a change of clothing.
"We have hundreds of people who collect their unused hotel toiletries and donate them for our families," says Connie Grammens, House director, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Montana. "This is a valuable way for individuals, business travelers and airline employees to help." The toiletries are distributed to guests at the House and are used to stock the Ronald McDonald Family Room within the hospital.
