Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) provides a home away from home for seriously ill children and their families; allowing them to access specialised medical treatment in another city. More than just a place to sleep, these facilities seek to alleviate the emotional, practical and financial burdens a family can face, so that they can focus on the most important thing – their child’s recovery.

Ronald McDonald Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest. Like the other 342 Houses worldwide, we believe that when a child is hospitalised, the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.


Ronald McDonald House spokesperson Wayne Howett, said he was delighted to accept the generous gesture, as LA-Z-BOY is a brand that has an unsurpassed reputation for delivering not just comfort but durability and first class warranties.

The LA-Z-BOY furniture brand is marketed and distributed in New Zealand by Morgan Furniture, a locally owned family business that has been around for close to 70 years. Morgan Furniture is adopting an initiative taken in the USA where LA-Z-BOY is the official supplier of a comprehensive lounge furniture package to over 175 Ronald McDonald Houses.
