You Helped Give Families 3,350 More Nights Together
Over the past six weeks, we’ve shared the stories of the Vale family, the Reynoso family, the Sullivan family, and the Schultz family – just four of the thousands of families we serve each year.
Thanks to your support this summer, we are able to provide more than 3,350 nights for families like theirs.
This year has been particularly challenging as more families need our service and we continue to respond to the ever-shifting world of COVID-19. But no matter what is happening in the world, families need our support, and we are committed to welcoming them with a warm meal, a comfortable bed, and a community they can rely on.
A family that stayed with us this summer shared, “I am so grateful for the supporters of Ronald McDonald House. I don’t think I can properly express with my words the ripple effect of kindness that your support has given me personally. As a single mom with two disabled children, I am on an incredibly tight budget and would never be able to afford a hotel room near my daughter’s hospital for her stay.”
That’s the difference you made. Whether you made a donation, bid on an auction item, enlisted your organization to make a gift, or shared our need with your community, we are truly grateful.
This summer, we are especially grateful to our corporate partners who supported this fundraising campaign, including Wintrust and HAVI for each providing $25,000 matching gifts. Additional corporate partners include Dr Pepper, True Group, Martin Brower, OSI, MOCNI, Advocate Children’s Hospital, United Scrap, Turano, McCain, Capstone, and GP Pro. Through their generous support, we are able to provide over 2,500 nights to families in need.
Some heroes fight. Other heroes help. To the families we serve each day, your support makes you a hero.
