Celebrating Moms

This May, help bring comfort and hope to moms whose children are facing serious health challenges. Use the form below to make a donation to Ronald McDonald House Charities in honor of a special woman in your life.

For over 41 years, the Albany Ronald McDonald House has been a source of strength and comfort for mothers like Melissa Steinbrecher. Melissa, her husband, Cody, and their two little boys found a home away from home at the Ronald McDonald House after Melissa gave birth to her third child, Tucker, eleven weeks early. After a traumatic birthing experience, Melissa and Cody were so grateful to have a place where their family could stay together while Tucker got the care he needed.

“We both get to see and hold and feed Tucker every day, and we’re together for dinner and bedtime with Sawyer and Jaxon every night. This house has made a really terrible situation into a net positive, because we’re going to look back and have good memories. Our kids won’t have a single bad memory of this time. They’re just going to know this is how we brought Tucker home.”

At Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region, we’re there for moms like Melissa, so that they can be there for their children. Please join us in celebrating and supporting moms with your donation. On behalf of every mom we serve, thank you!
