Near the care they need with the family they love…..

A letter from Jill Crocker, Executive Director – RMHC-Memphis:

March 24, 2020

Our mission at RMHC-Memphis remains constant as we respond to COVID-19.  We keep families close as they are receiving treatment from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

In the last few weeks, we have made significant changes to our operations to insure the health and safety of our volunteers, employees, and especially the families that depend upon us.  These changes now include the restriction to essential staff members and families.  All volunteers and outside activities have been suspended to include group dinners. 

We will continue to follow the directions from government agencies including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and our local public health departments.  In addition, we are working closely with our hospital partner, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

In this time of great uncertainty, we are relying on each other for support.  As part of our community, we hope that we can rely upon you to continue your generous support.  Here are a few ways that you can help today:

  • Make a donation.  Your financial support will help us continue to serve our families.

  • Donate the Pantry Wish List Items and have them shipped or dropped off at the House.

  • Round-Up for RMHC.  You can do so when you visit your local McDonald’s drive-thru.

We know that life has taken an unexpected turn, and I sincerely hope that you and your family are safe and healthy.  Thank you for being part of the RMHC-Memphis family.  As we serve the 42 families staying with us today, our work will go on with your continued dedication to our mission and your support. 

With Deep Gratitude,

Jill S. Crocker

Executive Director
