Donation Drives
Share |

HRACO will promote a donation drive quarterly to collect items for a local nonprofit. There were 7 pillars that the Association was surveyed about wanting to engage in. One pillar will be the focus each quarter and we will rotate in order of engagement by the members. The Board of Directors compiles a list of nonprofits in that category and then votes on the nonprofit to support for that quarter. Members are encouraged to submit nonprofits that they would like to see supported to the VP of Community Relations at Those nonprofits will be categorized into the 7 pillars and included in the vote for that quarter. The drives will focus on actual items that the nonprofits need that members can bring to the monthly meetings. These are also great ways to engage employees at your organizations and encourage them to also participate.


For the 1st quarter of 2019, HRACO has chosen to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio. For more than three decades, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio (RMHC) has been keeping families close at the Columbus Ronald McDonald House. From its beginnings as a grassroots movement established by a partnership between volunteers and local McDonald’s Owner/Operators, the charity has served thousands of families in their deepest times of need. The reality of having a child sick and in the hospital can be incredibly overwhelming to parents and siblings. What the Ronald McDonald House is able to provide these families is a bit of stability in the midst of unthinkable circumstances. When a child is hospitalized, the comfort of having family nearby is beyond measure. It is this heartfelt purpose that both drives and defines RMHC of Central Ohio.

The Ronald McDonald House Charities are able to create a home-away-from-home in the world’s largest Ronald McDonald House for the families due to the amazing community support of those who help to provide necessities to meet the many needs of the House. In order to create a comfortable space for these families, RMHC strives to provide every essential item to make them feel at home. Below is a list of the most needed items currently at the Ronald McDonald House:

Dryer sheets
Gas gift cards
Liquid dish soap (i.e. Dawn)
HE laundry soap (PODS preferred)
55-gallon heavy duty trash bags
Kitchen hand towels (new)
Copy paper
Disinfecting Spray (i.e. Lysol) or disinfectant wipes
Gallon sized storage bags
Wet clothe pads for Swiffer mops
