 In-hospital Ronald McDonald Family Rooms which provide the comforts of home within Townsville University Hospital and Mackay Base Hospital

 Ronald McDonald Learning Program across North Queensland and Northern Territory which allows children that have suffered serious illness to catch up on their schooling by providing access to 40hrs of free one-on-one tutoring
