HMA members contribute funds to support Ronald McDonald House
The house was built near Healthpark Medical Center a long time ago and has 6 rooms that meet the needs of underprivileged parents whose children are patients of The Children’s Hospital. The parents are referred by social workers or nurses of the children. They must live farther then 15 miles away or their child must be in critical condition. The Ronald McDonald house asks for a $10 donation per night – but some families can’t even afford that. The House provides a bedroom and 3 meals a day to the parents, even toiletries if it is an emergency situation bringing them there – everything they have to give away is donated by the public.
