Ronald McDonald House has just completed renovation of their original facility and with their addition completed last year, now have a total of 53 bedrooms. They are so grateful for the 300 plus pillows that our members so generously donated last year that made such a difference in their new wing of their House. They have asked for our help in furnishing the updated room with new pillows.
This expansion and renovation to the House allows them to serve more families with sick or injured children. The $12.5 million expansion also increased common area spaces including kitchens, dining room, laundry facilities, play areas and a peaceful rooftop garden which are so important to creating a “home away from home”. These areas help to foster the emotional connection between families and allow us to go beyond meeting their basic needs
The reach of our programs is incredible with families traveling from all over Florida, 24 states and 10 countries last year. By staying at the Ronald McDonald House, families can worry less about travel, meals and the financial burden of being away from home and focus on the most important thing, their child’s recovery. The Ronald McDonald House keeps families together and near the hospital while their child receives care.
We will be collecting pillows for the next several months and hope that you will once again support this effort. Each room has two double beds and a sleeper sofa and they have asked for 10 pillows for each of the 28 newly renovated rooms. .
