RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE EXPANSION

This summer, the Cincinnati Ronald McDonald House (RMH), 350 Erkenbrecher Ave., Cincinnati, will reopen after a large expansion; there are now a total of 177 bedrooms, serving 78 guest families each night. This makes it the largest Ronald McDonald House in the world! Also at RMH, West Wing guests can now dine in the newly renovated dining room. The West Wing of Ronald McDonald House serves immunocompromised children and their families; the new dining room takes into consideration not only the health of guests but also their desire to socialize and interact with one another. Visit rmhcincinnati.org for more information.
