For the third year in a row, PADC members and sponsors will prepare a meal for those staying at the local Ronald McDonald House.  

The Ronald McDonald House supports families of seriously ill children by creating a community of comfort and hope.  The House provides temporary lodging for families while their children receive pediatric care at local hospitals. It costs the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House $148 per night per family to provide housing and supportive services. Families are only asked to contribute $15 per night and no family is ever turned away due to an inability to pay.

This year, we are seeking volunteers to prepare and serve food from 3-8 pm on August 5, 2019 at the 39th and Chestnut Streets Ronald McDonald House location. PADC is seeking to raise a minimum of $400 to pay for the food to be prepared by the volunteers. (RMH procedures have changed and previously volunteers purchased their own ingredients for the food they would prepare, now volunteers pre-select a menu and RMH nutritionists purchase the ingredients needed).

 In lieu of volunteering, or in addition, we are also accepting monetary donations to the Ronald McDonald House.  Donations can be made in the following ways:

  •  Cash
  • Checks made payable to “Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House”
  • PADC’s PayPal Account under the event found on PADC’s website entitled “PADC Ronald McDonald Dinner”

Please send any cash or check to my attention at the below address.  If you are interested in volunteering or wish to receive additional information about the event, please contact myself or Jennifer Coatsworth at

Hope to see you there!
