Bring the Wishing Tree to Eugene
to the Springfield Ronald McDonald House at the PeaceHealth Heartfelt House

The Wishing Tree

A child’s serious illness or injury can rock the foundation of any family. For those who live far from a hospital, seeking the lifesaving and life-changing care their child needs can place added burdens on an already stressful situation. In a new city, far from home and far from the comforting support of friends and family, it is not hard to imagine that hope could be hard to come by.
But at the Ronald McDonald House, we believe that this hope matters. From the moment a family walks through our doors, we pride ourselves in providing the free-of-charge housing, access to medical care, compassion, and support that they need to feel hope for the future again. 
A powerful symbol of hope within our Houses, the Wishing Tree serves as the emblem for our effort, embodying the strength and shelter our community makes possible for these families.

Thanks to middle school students from Coburg Community Charter School, led by 7th-grade teacher Mrs. Epperson, this art project will help bring awareness about the Ronald McDonald House to our community, and we’re so grateful for their big hearts.

Join them in supporting RMHC and help us bring the Wishing Tree to our Springfield Ronald McDonald House.

A home is more than a place to stay: it’s a sanctuary.

At RMHC, our Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child — not where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night.

At our four Oregon Ronald McDonald Houses we are always ready to care for families traveling to receive the lifesaving and life-changing medical care their child needs. We are honored to care for these seriously ill or injured children and their families all across Oregon and to provide a home away from home – all at no cost to them.

Located inside the beautiful, custom-built Heartfelt House in Springfield, Oregon, our 10-family Springfield House features many expansive, bright spaces, playful art, pastoral views, lovely outdoor gardens, and a unique indoor/outdoor fireplace. Opened in 2019, the Springfield House, operated in partnership with PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center at Riverbend, welcomes children and families into a one-of-a-kind home away from home! 

Our Springfield House isn’t a hotel, it’s a place for families can stay together, comfort each other, and find peace together.
