Ronald McDonald House:
The mission of the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is to create, find, and support programs that directly improve the health and well being of children. The Disque Foundation is very involved in the Chicago chapter, which provides families the opportunity to stay with their hospitalized children while they receive care away from home at little to no cost. The RMHS believes that families are stronger together and being surrounded by loved ones can help with the healing process. RMHC provides food, shelter and access to their child's health team to keep the focus on recovery rather than everyday tasks like grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning. The Disque Foundation assists in leading contributions and activities on a monthly basis in support RMHC's effort to provide outstanding support for families in need.
