    • Ronald McDonald house Charities of Oregon and SW Washington

      Ronald McDonald house Charities of Oregon and SW Washington For over 20 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Oregon and Southwest Washington has provided a “home away from home” for families with children under the age of 22 who need medical attention. At our Bend Ronald McDonald House we serve many families with a baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit who isn’t just quite ready to come home from the hospital right away. We also serve many families from our rural communities throughout Central, Eastern and Southern Oregon who are traveling to the Bend area for medical consultations, treatment and attention. Our Bend House has six family suites along with a beautiful outdoor area and playground, entertainment room, play room, a fully stocked kitchen and pantry, home cooked meals in the evening, all residing in a beautiful timber framed home truly representing the love of our community who built this house. Our organization is built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child. A child’s medical treatment and access to care should not be restricted based on proximity to home, and families should not have to worry about where they can afford to stay during treatment, or where they will be able to get their next meal. At RMHC, we believe that when a child is hospitalized, the love and support of their family being physically with them, is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed. The Bend Ronald McDonald House is a place that provides the opportunity, along with compassionate hospitality, for the entire family to heal. As our communities grow, the demand for medical services and treatment grows, the need for lodging close to the hospitals and medical providers grows, as does our occupancy. Please consider supporting the Bend Ronald McDonald House.

Adoption fees do not cover the costs required to save the animals. BrightSide is a high-save shelter dedicated to providing sheltering, placement and prevention services to reduce animal homelessness and unnecessary euthanasia. We believe that every animal that enters through our back receiving door deserves the chance to leave through our front door with a secure future. We’re proud to have a save rate that’s one of the highest in the country. Over 1,500 dogs and cats benefitted from BrightSide programs last year. Animals arrive at BrightSide as strays, surrenders or confiscations and leave as well-loved found or adopted pets. Further serving the Deschutes County area, BrightSide offers a pet food bank along with warm dog coats for the winter and partners with the County under an Emergency Preparedness Plan. If you, too, believe in the high-save mission, that each animal is worth saving and deserves our best efforts, please contribute. At BrightSide, every dollar is optimized through valiant volunteer efforts and community partnerships. Volunteers spend RUFFly sixteen hours per day walking the dogs providing exercise and socialization. Cats enjoy the same amount of PURRfectly deserved indoor attention. This totals over 10,000 hours of loving care of shelter animals per year complimenting the excellent BrightSide staff. And, as needed, volunteers open their homes to animals requiring special care such as kitten or puppy litters and medical situations. We thank our current business sponsors and welcome new friends! BrightSide has an impressive number of people helping, but needs generous donations to fulfill the high-save mission.
