Rochester Ronald McDonald House Getting Huge Expansion
Huge changes coming to the Rochester Ronald McDonald House.
Just shy of a year ago, the Ronald McDonald House started a campaign - Love Tremendously Hope Exceedingly - in hopes to raising enough donations for a huge expansion. As of today, they have raised over $13-million. With that being said, they are set to break ground tomorrow - May 1st.
The expansion will include 30 new rooms, will double their current size, and allow them to accommodate an additional 600 families a year. According to the Ronald McDonald website, in addition to the rooms, they will also build in indoor and outdoor play areas, an indoor gym, underground parking spots, and green space. Construction should last about a year.
The expansion will make the Ronald McDonald House of Rochester the largest Ronald McDonald House in Minnesota.
