Wow! Good job HIM.


What a wonderful demonstration of the holiday spirit! Thank you.


As a Mom that has had the gift of staying at the Ronald McDonald ,I want to say "Thank you" on behalf of the parents and siblings that call the House "home" for just a night or for months. I say its a gift because I was a single Mom staying in Rochester and I was able to feel comfortable and safe, able to sleep. The House is a special place and those that contribute to it are special too.
