Give the Gift of Meals

Donate a meal

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. 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:

Please consider making a cash donation to our Meals Matter program. During this time, we have been able to partner with U-M’s Aramark food service to provide meals to our families Monday to Thursday. Donations to our Meals Matter program help us purchase these meals at a reduced cost.  Your donation of any amount is greatly appreciated.

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, email dinner@rmhcannarbor.org – or call the office at (734) 994-4442 and select option #2 to speak to Program Services Manager, Nancy Bailey.  She will provide details on the number of dinners needed and delivery time.

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, Program Services Manager, Nancy Bailey.
