For each and every hour you donated,
For each welcoming smile and comforting hug you shared with
our families, staff and volunteers,
For every warm, home-cooked meal you provided to our families
each night at our four Ronald McDonald Houses,
And for every family night you helped to sponsor,
Your continued support helped to provide our families with a ‘home away from home’
during their greatest time of need – when their child was in the hospital.
You truly helped to fill each & every night at our four Ronald McDonald Houses with Love, Hope, Comfort & Care.
Thank you for being there for our families so they could be there
for their child in the hospital!
Help us keep families of hospitalized children together – every $50 donation will support one family night filled with Love, Hope, Comfort & Care.
Volunteer your time & talents at one of our Ronald McDonald Houses, Ronald McDonald Family Room, or at one of our fundraising events.
This past year, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana celebrated two major milestones!
In February, we opened our new Ronald McDonald Family Room in Edward Hospital – the first Ronald McDonald Family Room in Illinois!
Our Family Room serves as a haven of respite and hospitality to families whose children are in treatment.
Then at the end of June, we celebrated the Grand Opening of our new Ronald McDonald House near Lurie Children’s – the largest Ronald McDonald House in the world located right here in Chicago!
Located at 211 East Grand in Streeterville, the new House supports the needs of families whose children are receiving treatment at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago & the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.
Now, we can keep 140 families together each and every night at our four Houses and Ronald McDonald Family Room!
Over this past year, we were able to provide over 31,000 family nights saving families $7 million in hotel costs.
See all of our ‘COUNT UP’ stars from this year!
