Cookies from the Heart at Ronald McDonald House near University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital

‘Cookies from the Heart’

Volunteers prepare some sweet treats for our families to enjoy


There is nothing better than coming home to the smell of fresh baked cookies in the kitchen. The treats you provide will be a comforting snack for the families that stay at our House each day to be near their child in the hospital.


Cookies from the Heart volunteers work as a small group, between two and ten, to plan their treat, purchase the ingredients and bake in our full service kitchen. You can make any type of treat you’d like, from cookies and brownies to rice crispy treats or puppy chow. We typically ask that your group prepare 2 to 3 batches of the treat you have decided to make.
