Mile High Magazine 11/27/2023 Ronald McDonald House

Guest: John Burtness VP of Development Ronald McDonald House has been working to keep families with sick kids together.  Being alone in the hospital can be a traumatic experience, especially for children.  Between the two houses in Denver, they are able to house 118 families.  Each room is very similar to a hotel room.  They are also shared rooms, such as sitting areas and pay rooms for the kids.  They have volunteers that bring in a home cooked meal to feed the families staying at the houses.  It cost Ronald McDonald house $125 a night to house the families.  A family can stay as long as their child is being treated.  Coming up on November 30th is Light The House Radiothon.  They ask listeners to be a Ray of Hope; they commit to donate $20 a month for the year.
