A child’s serious illness or injury can rock the foundation of any family. For those who live far from a hospital, seeking the lifesaving and life-changing care their child needs can place added burdens on an already stressful situation. In a new city, far from home and far from the comforting support of friends and family, it is not hard to imagine that hope could be hard to come by.
But at the Ronald McDonald House, we believe that this hope matters. From the moment a family walks through our doors, we pride ourselves in providing the free-of-charge housing, access to medical care, compassion, and support that they need to feel hope for the future again.
A powerful symbol of hope within our Houses, the Wishing Tree serves as the emblem for our effort, embodying the strength and shelter our community makes possible for these families.
Thanks to middle school students from Coburg Community Charter School, led by 7th-grade teacher Mrs. Epperson, this art project will help bring awareness about the Ronald McDonald House to our community, and we’re so grateful for their big hearts.
Join them in supporting RMHC and help us bring the Wishing Tree to our Springfield Ronald McDonald House.
