Lumber Liquidators is a proud sponsor of Ronald McDonald House Charities, which supports programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children.
RMHC Mission Statement
The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities, Inc. (RMHC®) is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well being of children. RMHC fulfills its mission by creating innovative, effective programs that address targeted needs, and by supporting these programs and other activities conducted by its local Chapters worldwide. RMHC also awards grants to other nonprofit children's organizations that positively impact the health and well being of children around the world.
RMHC Core Programs
RMHC has three core programs that help families in need: Ronald McDonald House®, Ronald McDonald Family Room® and Ronald McDonald Care Mobile®. As the most well-known program, Ronald McDonald House provides a home away from home for families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at nearby hospitals. The second major program, Ronald McDonald Family Room, extends the comfort of a Ronald McDonald House into the hospital. Often located steps away from pediatric and intensive care units, a Ronald McDonald Family Room provides a place to enjoy a warm meal, talk with other parents and relax. Through relationships with local clinical service providers, Ronald McDonald Care Mobile programs bring cost-effective, high-quality medical, dental and health education services directly to under served children in rural and urban areas across the globe.

National Braille Press
Lumber Liquidators is pleased to support the National Braille Press' goal of eliminating the literacy gap that separates blind children from the mainstream. Supplying books at an early age inspires a love of reading and desire to learn that promotes independence later in life. Lumber Liquidators has helped the non-profit braille publisher provide books such as Harry Potter and Dr. Seuss to blind children on their way to self sufficiency.
About the National Braille Press
National Braille Press is a Boston-based nonprofit braille printing and publishing house founded in 1927. The guiding purposes of National Braille Press are to promote the literacy of blind children through braille and to provide access to information that empowers blind people to actively engage in work, family, and community affairs.

Lumber Liquidators is excited to partner with ShelterBox, to help provide emergency shelter, warmth and dignity to disaster survivors around the world. ShelterBox is a disaster relief charity that responds at a moment's notice to provide life-saving aid to those in need. Each box supplies an extended family with a tent and essential equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless. ShelterBox was founded by Tom Henderson, a Rotarian and former Royal Navy search and rescue diver. He saw that the aid response to most disasters was in the form of food and medicine to help people survive the immediate aftermath. Little or no assistance was given in terms of proper shelter to help them through the first few days, weeks and months as they tried to rebuild their lives. ShelterBox was launched to fill that void.
