We are so excited to announce our charity of choice this year will be the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware! In 1991, they opened up to provide families with a safe, comfortable, affordable place to stay while their children received treatment at nearby hospitals. In the 26 years since opening, they have expanded services to include relaxing Family Rooms in 3 Delaware hospitals, a meal program that utilizes volunteer groups to prepare dinner 365 days/year, shuttle services for errands and recreation, and a ton of passes to local establishments for families to enjoy their time here as much as possible given the circumstances.
The House’s proximity to Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children keeps the 50 guest rooms occupied at high rates with families from across the United States and around the world.
· Shortest stay: 1 night
· Longest stay: 2+ years
· Families served in 2016: 2,103
· Operating cost: $72 per room per night
· Average family contribution: $4.28 per night
This is why donations and fundraisers are so important for us to be able to keep families close to their loved ones in the hospital! To donate, please see the front desk!
