New Member: Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Central Valley
The Tulare Chamber welcomes new member, Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Central Valley.
Ronald McDonald House’s mission is to provide a “Home away from Home” and resources to children and families who are experiencing emotional and financial burdens while coping with a seriously ill, hospitalized child. It is our honor to provide families with all the comforts of Home while their child heals. Many families travel far from home and spend several weeks or months to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children – a long time to be away or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having mom and dad close by for love and support. Located adjacent to Valley Children’s Hospital, our 22,000 sq. ft. House is a refuge for families with children receiving treatment. Each night 18 families call our House, their Home. In 2015, 619 families traveled from across the 9 counties of the Central Valley to stay with us. Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram at @RMHCcenvalley for updates on how we serve our community. If you are interested in donating or volunteering, you can visit our website at www.RMHCcv.org or call 559-447-6770. #keepingfamiliesclose
