The Ronald McDonald House in Springfield keeps families close by providing them with a place to stay and warm meals to eat during a difficult and stressful time in their lives. Located at 610 North Seventh Street, RMHCCI serves more than 400 families each year. In order to serve even more families, RMHCCI depends on the generous support of the community, especially through the Give a Little Love campaign. Support from the community is essential to keeping families close and allowing them to stay at the House free of charge while their child receives medical care.

“Year after year, we at McDonald’s, see the incredible support the Ronald McDonald House provides to local families in need, and we love to see the community get involved and help us give back,” said Jack Millan, a local McDonald’s owner/operator and RMHCCI Board Member. “We can’t thank our customers enough for their generous donations. We are truly grateful.”
