27 Mar Zombie Gives Back: Ronald McDonald House of Columbia
The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Columbia, South Carolina provides guest families with all the comforts of home, so they are able to focus on what matters the most, the health of their child. The organization strives to keep families close to each other and to give them the care that they need. The Ronald McDonald House provides a comfortable environment where families can rest, enjoy home-cooked meals, relax in spacious living areas, access laundry facilities and most importantly, receive a network of support among other families struggling with similar worries and fears. This stability allows families to focus on being there for their child when it matters the most. The Ronald McDonald Family room extends this comfort to the Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital by providing an oasis from the hustle and bustle of hospital corridors and crowded waiting rooms.
HOW THEY ARE GIVING BACK
The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Columbia, SC hold fundraising events throughout the year to continue to provide the highest level of care and comfort to guest families. Although it costs $75 per family per night to operate the Ronald McDonald House, each family is only encouraged to contribute $15 per night. No family is ever turned away from the Ronald McDonald House due to an inability to contribute. The Ronald McDonald House is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. The Ronald McDonald House and the Ronald McDonald Family Room ensure that families stay together when staying together matters the most.
We are proud to name them as one of our organizations of the month!
