Ronald McDonald House is a national not-for-profit with a mission of helping seriously ill children and their families. It is Australia’s most well-known children’s charity, with a local presence in communities across the country. RMHC, including our various programs such as Ronald McDonald Houses and the Ronald McDonald Learning Program, works with national partners to achieve shared valued, tangible results and measurable positive impact.
Ronald McDonald House Westmead is a credible, professional and proactive organisation and one of the most respected children’s charities in Australia, that support families of children with serious illness.
Dedicated to helping seriously ill children and their families, Ronald McDonald House Charities Australia® (RMHC®) has provided vital help to over 100,000 families through a wide range of programs. McDonald’s® Australia pays all national, general and administration costs for the Charity and is a generous donor but RMHC still relies on donations from corporates and the public to continue to assist those who need it most.
At Ronald McDonald House Westmead, we provide guests with a warm, light filled homely place to stay. Together they can give each other with the moral and emotional support to get through their child’s illness. They can form relationships with other parents who are going through same or similar experiences and staff and volunteers will provide care and support throughout the stay, no matter how short or long. With 18 rooms of various sizes in the House and 5 units located on Redbank Rd, we can cater to many families’ needs.
Office Supplies Australia Director Fraser Thomson said “It is exciting news to announce the new Corporate Partnership between Ronald McDonald House Westmead and Office Supplies Australia. As a father of 2 children under the age of 7, it is great to be involved with such an amazing charity, that provides guests with a homely place to stay, where staff and guests provide moral and emotional support to one another, to assist getting them through their child’s illness. Office Supplies Australia and Ronald McDonald House are like minded organisations that are committed to the health and wellbeing of seriously ill children and their families.
Other charities that Office Supplies Australia support are KidsXpress, Gidget Foundation, Bears of Hope and Northcott.
I am looking forward to hosting with the Office Supplies Australia team, Meals from the Heart. Quoted by Ronald McDonald House “A meal has the power to turn a house into a home, and a stranger into a friend. This is a night that will see the Office Supplies Australia team providing the ingredients and cooking the families staying at Ronald McDonald House a lovely home cooked meal, by the friendly and happy Office Supplies Team. We will have the opportunity to learn about their journey and make a little difference by making them laugh and smile to leave a positive impact on their day. This will provide a reality check as to how fortunate we are, and why it is so important to support great charities like Ronald McDonald House Westmead”.
Office Supplies Australia strongly believes in giving back to the community and lending a helping hand when needed. When it comes to giving back to the community, we provide support and sponsorship to assist young Australians with the resources and opportunities that they need in order to reach their full potential.
