Hospitality a la Carte Program
We know how stressful it is to have an ill child and to wait for their medical appointments or services. On a daily basis, there are many families visiting Michigan Medicine C. S. Mott Children’s Hospital who spend many hours. To help meet their needs, RMHCAA is excited to introduce the Hospitality a la Carte program, which enables us to serve even more families. The cart was made possible by a donation to RMHC Global from the McDonald’s Hispanic Owner Operator Association. The cart will provide comfort items; things a family might need when they have a long wait.
We are currently accepting donations of items for the cart. For a complete list of items needed, view our hospitalitycartewishlist .
