In November 2002, the Board of Directors at the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island embarked on a $5 million journey to more than double the size of the existing facility. The reason for this project was to help alleviate the pressures the resident managers faced when forced to turn away families in need. The new building, consisting of 24 additional bedrooms along with expanded community areas, has allowed the House to serve approximately one thousand families each year.
The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island provides families a home-away-from-home during their child’s treatment for a serious illness or injury at local hospitals. Since 1986, the House has served more than 18,000 families, with more than half coming from Long Island and the boroughs of New York. The warm and supportive atmosphere of the House combined with the ability to be at their children’s bedside within minutes, is priceless to families during difficult times.For more information on the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, visit www.rmhlongisland.org.
