When a family arrives at the Ronald McDonald House of SNJ they are often afraid of what's to come, nervous about staying in a strange place and exhausted from traveling or a long day at the hospital. We strive to ensure they feel safe and comfortable as we welcome them to our home. Many times they arrive with only the clothes on their back or having forgotten some of the basic items that you use everyday in their rush to get here.
This is why "Family Welcome Bags" are so needed. It is our hope to be able to give each family a "Welcome Bag" when they arrive. Hopefully receiving one will put a smile or their faces and help alleviate some of the stress they are feeling.
In order to ensure each "Welcome Bag" is the same we are asking that you include the following items and place them in a bag.
- Travel Size Shampoo & Conditioner
- Travel Size Toothpaste & Toothbrush (toothbrush can be regular size)
- Hand Lotion
- Fuzzy Socks
- Chap Stick
- Tissue Pack
- Note Pad & Pen
- Hand Sanitizer
Homemade cards or notes of encouragement are greatly appreciated and may be placed in each bag.
