About Ronald McDonald House Charities of Hawaii
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Hawaii (RMHC-Hawaii) offers support for families with seriously ill children by operating two Ronald McDonald Houses in Manoa Valley. Families from the neighbor islands and around the Pacific may stay there when they come to Honolulu seeking medical care for their children. Each year, hundreds of families make Ronald McDonald House their “home away from home.”
RMHC-Hawaii also provides the Ronald McDonald House Family Room, a respite and support center inside Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children. At the Family Room, most of those assisted are from Oahu.
RMHC-Hawaii programs strengthen and support families during a very difficult time. For a child, having family members nearby to give love and comfort may be as crucial as medical care itself.
RMHC-Hawaii relies heavily on community support to keep the Houses running, not only through monetary donations, but also through countless hours of personal time committed by volunteers.
Located in Honolulu’s busy industrial district of Iwilei, Sam Choy’s family-style, casual restaurant opened in May 1997. It has provided local residents with a warm and friendly environment in which to enjoy large portions of local favorites. The restaurant features local favorites for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and showcases a variety of fresh crab, lobster and shellfish. Hawaii’s award-winning Aloha Lager is brewed on the premises.
