Meals really do matter to our families. Our families tell us that dinner gives them a break from the hospital and time to connect with others, as well as a feeling of comfort and being cared for and supported. Unfortunately, we have had to temporarily suspend our Dinner Group volunteer program to help ensure the health of our families. In order to minimize risk, we are asking the community to serve our families in a different way.
Here are a few options to help support our families with meals:
1) PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A CASH DONATION TO OUR “MEALS MATTER” PROGRAM. We have been able to partner with UM’s Aramark food service to provide meals to our families Monday thru Thursday. Donations to our Meals Matter program help us purchase these meals at a reduced cost. Your donation of any amount is greatly appreciated.
DONATE TO MEALS MATTER here.
2) PROVIDE A MEAL FOR OUR FAMILIES ON THE WEEKEND. Arrange for a meal to be delivered to the House on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Instead of making a meal, you can provide a meal to families by having food delivered from a local restaurant of your choice. Dinners need to be individually packaged for health and safety reasons. Check the calendar below for available weekend dates. After choosing a date, call the office at (734) 994-4442 and select option #1 to speak to Operations Director, Marcia Monson. She will provide details on the number of dinners needed and delivery time.
3) PROVIDE RESTAURANT GIFT CARDS. A donation of a $25 gift card allows families to order a meal at their convenience, and is a special treat during this difficult time in their lives. Cards from restaurants that deliver to the House allows them to stay close to their child. Gift cards can be mailed to the House at 1600 Washington Hts., Ann Arbor, MI 48104. Gift cards purchased online can be emailed to RMHCAA’s Operations Director, Marcia Monson, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MEALS REALLY DO MATTER. THANK YOU!
