Ronald McDonald House announces total remodel for Springfield location
Springfield - The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois (RMHCCI) announced they will remodel their building, after 28 years.
The project, is "Labor of Love: Give from the heart to keep families together." The project is set to start in June of this year. The House will undergo a complete renovation and expand from 12 bedrooms to 14 bedrooms.
As part of this campaign the RMHCCI will also launch the "Adopt-the-House" program. The new program will allow for individuals, groups and businesses to 'adopt' one or more rooms of the House by making a donation to help refurbish a particular area.
The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois is to provide a supportive home away from home for families with children receiving medical care in Springfield. RMHCCI serves approximately 400 families per year who travel to Springfield from throughout central Illinois.
The Ronald McDonald House opened in 1986, at 610 North 7th Street in Springfield. They plan to spend $1.2 million in renovations. Find out more about RMHCCI here.
