The Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Bluegrass has a mission, “To create and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and to strengthen families by keeping them together in times of medical need.” This nonprofit organization provides a home for families that have a child in the hospital. They understand the importance of keeping families close together in difficult times.
Families that stay at the house can enjoy home- cooked meals, laundry facilities, 20 bedrooms with private bathrooms, indoor and outdoor playrooms for children, and transportation to and from local hospitals.
According to their website, “It costs around $72 per night, per room to operate the Ronald McDonald House program. To support ongoing operations, we encourage, but do not require, guests to make a donation of $10 per night (or whatever amount they are able) in order to ensure the availability of the House for future guests.” They do not turn away families that are unable to contribute.
If you wish to help out with the Ronald McDonald House you can volunteer, make a monetary donation or donate items from their wish list found online.
