Ronald McDonald House Charities South Central Ontario provides a home away from home for families of children who are seriously ill and being treated at nearby hospitals.

The Happy Wheels Hospitality Cart program, located at McMaster Children's Hospital, is an extension of the services provided at the House, reaching families who may be unable to leave their child’s side.

Volunteers take the cart around various wards in the hospital to offer a hot or cold drink, light snack or activities to families in the patient rooms. Volunteers create an atmosphere of warmth and support by serving and interacting with families.  Volunteers will maintain tidiness and cleanliness within the Happy Wheels room.
