Last year we participated in an event dear to our heart. The Ronald McDonald House of Providence provides programs that directly improve the health and well-being of hospitalized children and their families. Their programs allow families to spend additional time with a sick child, help ease financial burdens, provide a sense of normalcy and keep families together during times of medical crisis. Each year nearly 300 families stay at the Ronald McDonald House of Providence and an additional 1,900 enjoy the comforts of the Family Room. Without the RMH of Providence, families would sleep in hospital waiting rooms, in their cars, or have to turn to local hotels.
