RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE
JBMF supports Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida (RMH) and we started with AdventHealth Orlando, the hospital campus where Jason received most of his cancer treatments. RMH provides a home away from home for families who have children receiving treatment at hospitals and medical facilities in Orlando.
Through our generous sponsors and volunteers, JBMF continues to offer support to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida through:
In 2018, JBMF launched an initiative with Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Florida to provide snacks for families staying at their three houses in Central Florida. Family members spend long hours at their child's bedside in the hospital and these snacks will help them maximize time with their sick child.
Through our, "Feeling Hungry? You're in Luck!" Snack Bag initiative, JBMF provides grab & go snack bags for the over 2,500 families staying in the houses throughout the year. The seed money for this initiative was raised at Shamrocks & Shenanigans 2018 and the first Snack Bags were delivered in July 2018. To date, JBMF has delivered over 5,000 Snack Bags to the Ronald McDonald Houses in Central Florida.
As an extension of our relationship with the Ronald McDonald Houses of Central Florida, JBMF provides Hygiene Kits for families staying in the RMH Houses. More often than not, families arrive at the Houses with the bare minimum. These Hygiene Kits contain shampoo, conditioner, lotion, bath soap, toothbrush and toothpaste and each guest room is stocked with them for the families to use during their stay. To date JBMF has delivered 650 Hygiene Kits to RMH Houses.
Thank you to our partners for their donations to JBMF for these Hygiene Kits: Dr. David Junca at Junca Dental & Associates; Dr. Randall Sipp, DMD at Complete Dental at Lakeside, Dr. Will Dunn at Lake Baldwin Dental and Marriott Vacations Worldwide.

JBMF is excited to announce our sponsorship in connection with Ronald McDonald Houses of Central Florida of the Nemours Children's Health Hospitality Cart (Cart).
The Cart is a mobile cart which brings comfort and care to families within the Hospital who wait long hours/days without leaving their child's bedside. Items on the Cart include snacks, drinks, games, books, etc. - anything to make their stay a little more comforting.
JBMF has continued our relationship with the Ronald McDonald House at AdventHealth Orlando, the hospital campus where Jason received most of his cancer treatments, and periodically serves meals there in addition to the other Central Florida locations under their "Share-A-Meal" service.
The Ronald McDonald House (RMH), provides a home away from home for families with children receiving treatment at hospitals and medical facilities in Orlando. Lunch and dinner are provided to the families on a volunteer basis and JBMF is proud to help make and serve meals to the families.

JBMF has sponsored a room at the Ronald McDonald House at the AdventHealth Orlando, the hospital campus where Jason received most of his cancer treatments.
An Irish theme was selected for Room 21 and photos from Jason's time abroad were used. Room renovations were completed in 2018. Special thanks to Lynn Blair Interiors for her design and dedication to this project.
