April 13, 2020—MADERA, Calif.—On April 6, 2020, the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Central Valley (RMHCCV) reached its milestone 36th anniversary. Located in Madera, California next to Valley Children’s Healthcare, RMHCCV provides a home away from home and resources for families of children who are hospitalized. RMHCCV operates 18 guest bedrooms, a ‘Day Room’, ‘Spare Room’, and the Happy Wheels Hospitality Cart at no charge to families with the support of the community.
“We are so proud to be able to support families in need at the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Central Valley,” said Dr. Kent Karsevar, Executive Director of RMHCCV. “We rely on the support of our board of directors, donors and volunteers to provide a safe and peaceful space for families. We thank our community for their continued support.”
Implications from COVID-19 resulted in the suspension of fundraising events and volunteer activities, creating a financial burden on the Ronald McDonald House. To support RMHC, the charity is asking the community to consider giving a $36 donation in honor of its 36th anniversary. Donations can be made online at www.rmhccv.org.
