WICS Newschannel 20 & FOX Illinois’ Joy of Sharing Day

joy of sharing 2015We are thrilled to partner with WICS and FOX Illinois again this year for the Joy of Sharing Day!  Thank you for visiting our website!

At Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois, we provide a home away from home for families who travel to Springfield in order for their child to receive medical care.  They’re provided with all the amenities of home – a private bedroom and bathroom, a kitchen and other common living areas, a pantry and more – for as long as their child is being treated, at no cost to them.  That’s where you can help!  In order to continue to provide this service to families at no cost to them, we rely on support from the community – you!

Your donation means keeping families close at a time when it is needed most.  When you donate to RMHCCI, you’re ensuring that families stay close to their child and you’re eliminating the financial burdens of lodging, food and transportation for them at the same time.

From all of us at the Ronald McDonald House, we truly appreciate your support!

Donate now to keep families close this holiday season.
