Ronald McDonald House Charities®
Our Commitment to Comfort
When it comes to helping sick children and their families, providing comfort is the least we can do. Thatâ€™s why La-Z-Boy became the official furniture provider of Ronald McDonald House Charities. Together with RMHC, we make sure that families have a comfortable "home away from home" while their children receive much needed medical care.
Comfort and Caring in Action
La-Z-Boy is honored to receive the 2013 RMHC Outstanding Stewardship Award. This award recognizes corporations who have embraced the mission of RMHC as their own; and who have exceeded expectations in their support of the Charity.
Comfort is a word that has been long associated with the La-Z-Boy brand, and what can be more important than comforting a family in their time of need? La-Z-Boy is very proud to have provided thousands of sofas, chairs, sectionals and recliners to the Ronald McDonald Houses and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms across North America. At La-Z-Boy, we believe comfort is more than a tagline, itâ€™s a commitment.
The Ronald McDonald HouseÂ®
The Ronald McDonald House program provides families with a â€œhome away from homeâ€ while their children receive treatment in a nearby hospital or medical facility. Here, family members can sleep, eat, relax and find support from other families in similar situations. Since 1974, Ronald McDonald Houses have helped more than 10 million families in need. There are currently 174 Ronald McDonald Houses in North America.
Ronald McDonald Family RoomÂ®
The Ronald McDonald Family Room program provides a home-like haven inside hospitals, offering families of critically ill children opportunities to reflect, shower or rest without leaving their childâ€™s side. There are currently 70 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms in North America.
