Join the Hearts & Hands Society

All children deserve access to life-saving medical care and heal faster with their families by their side. Many families simply could not afford this care without your support of Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities. By joining the Hearts & Hands Society through a monthly donation, you can give families, like the Lows, the gift of togetherness and enable family-centered care.

Simply complete our online donation form once to set up your recurring gift and you can help transform the lives of children and families every single day.
