ATO RHM Gift Card Drive
3/22 - 4/17
At ATO, we believe in care - family centered care. We believe that when a child is sick, the greatest gift we can give them is the love & strength of family - and we believe that it is what they deserve. Because of these beliefs, ATO will be partnering with the Ronald McDonald House of Central Indiana for the first ever ATO Gift Card Drive, with all proceeds going directly to the families who are supporting their hospitalized children.
Every year, more than 1900 families stay at the Ronald McDonald House of Central Indiana while their children receive life-saving treatment at Indianapolis-area children's hospitals, primarily Riley’s Hospital for Children. The Ronald McDonald House Charity programs and services offer care & comfort to these families across Indiana, and around the world -- yet the need continues.
The gift cards that participants donate go straight to the RMH and are used to buy food, clothes, and other things to support sick children and their families while their children are hospitalized. While parents stay at the RMH the gift cards that they will have access to will range from local restaurants, coffee shops to offer a break from the hospital, to big box stores and local businesses to buy supplies and things they may need as they are far from home.
Donate your gift cards to this drive to help support and provide comfort to the families of hospitalized children in Indiana. Any gift card, new or used, is accepted. No amount is too small. Those cards you have not used and are shoved in the back of your wallet or your drawers, we will take them! Cards will be accepted between 3/22/21 - 4/17/21 at the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity house, right outside of our front door. Other ways to help include mailing the cards to our house at 314 N Russel St or donating straight through our dedicated giving page on the RMH official website.

"ATO has given me countless opportunities to meet new people, engage with Purdue's student body in different ways, and allowed me to grow in all facets of my life. Becoming a part of this brotherhood has been one of the best decisions of my life, and I cannot wait for what lies in the future with my best friends by my side as my time at Purdue continues on..."
