The Ronald McDonald House of Augusta is looking for donations to support its annual Santa Shop. This initiative provides gifts and personal items to families being hosted by the RMH.
“Moments away from home and family, the Santa Shop allows our families to get into the holiday spirit while decreasing the stress of worrying about their families missing out on Christmas,” said Nikia Bennett, operations director for the RMH. “The impact of the Santa Shop program at the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Augusta is tremendous.”
Below is a list of items needed at this year’s Santa Shop:
- Fleece blankets
- Bath and body gift sets
- Fashion jewelry
- Video games
- Bluetooth speakers
- Decorative socks
- Sports balls (basketball, football, soccer, etc.)
- Learn and play items
- Musical or talking stuffed animals
Gift cards are also accepted.
“Donors can drop off items in the lobby of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Augusta located at 1442 Harper St. We are a 24-hour operation,” Bennett said. “You may deliver donations at your convenience.”
The Santa Shop is located on the third floor of the Ronald McDonald House and will be available through Christmas Day. Parents will be allowed to shop for their families.
