About the Ronald McDonald House
The Ronald McDonald House program provides a "home-away from-home" for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child or loved one at little or no cost. While the Ronald McDonald House provides basic food, residents will augment what the facility provides with their own food. Also, residents have to cook their own food. When a group like the MSUBA YAI provides a meal it is very appreciated by residents who spend their days at the bed side of their hospitalized loved one.
