$100 Million Ronald McDonald House Charities Donation!!!
The Ronald McDonald House is an amazing place for kids and families to stay when they need medical help. And RMH Charities just received an enormous donation that'll make a HUGE difference here in Rochester!
"Ronald McDonald House Charities announced a $100 million donation from AbbVie at its international conference in Chicago on Monday, resulting in a $3.3 million grant for the Ronald McDonald House of Rochester, Minnesota and its Love Tremendously Hope Exceedingly capital campaign."
Peggy Elliott, the Executive Director in Rochester says, “It’s an incredible gift. The House has been blessed in the expansion process and today is no exception. AbbVie has made a lasting and meaningful impact on children and families. It still brings tears to my eyes.”
How will the Rochester RMH share help? It comes at a time they're expanding and knocks their "still needed" to less than a million dollars. That makes a huge difference in the expansion of rooms from 42 to 70, which ups the number of families they can serve from 800 to 1,500!
ps - The Ronald McDonald House of Rochester was born in 1980 as Northland Children’s Services.
