Time flies! It's been a year since we expanded our House & opened our second Ronald McDonald Family Room. We are so thankful to every donor & volunteer who supported this growth. Because of you, approximately twice as many families were supported through our House and we reached a whole new community through the Family Room! THANK YOU! #keepingfamiliesclose #InternationalThankYouDay
