Providing comfort for families through tough times, that's part of the mission of the Ronald McDonald House. Thursday, that mission became a little easier.
Thanks to a donation and the strong backs and tender hearts of volunteers, the Ronald McDonald House has 36 new beds. It's an overhaul that those at the Ronald McDonald House say will have a definite impact.
"We are a home away from home for families who have critically ill children who are being treated in one of the Baltimore area hospitals," said executive director of the Ronald McDonald House Sandy Pagnotti. "Today, this morning at 8 a.m., we had firefighters, UPS, Under Armour, SAE Fraternity from UMBC, the Navy. I hope I'm not missing anybody."
At the Baltimore Ronald McDonald House, there's never an empty room and always a waiting list.
Now, those working at the Ronald McDonald House can spend less time worrying about appropriate places to sleep and more time getting those in need resources.
The new mattresses, 36 in count, were donated by Tempur-Pedic.
