September Heartbeat: RMH of Chapel Hill Receives $20,000 Donation
RMH of Chapel Hill Receives $20,000 Donation
The Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill has been awarded a $20,000 grant from Lehigh Hanson to support the House’s Cornerstone Project, an ongoing effort to maintain excellent facilities in support of families with a child facing medical crisis.
The Lehigh Hanson Cares program grant will allow the House to begin necessary repairs following failures in the HVAC system, plumbing and outdoor water drainage systems—repairs that fall outside of the scope of the organization’s normal fundraising efforts.
These unforeseen facility failures reduced the House’s capacity from 53 to 43 rooms. The Cornerstone Project will ensure that the House can continue to provide all the comforts of home, just one mile from world-class medical care at UNC Hospitals.
Thank you to Lehigh Hanson for their generous support! Read more about this donation here.
Each year, RMHC of NC compiles our annual report to recap the impact we’ve made in our mission over the last year. In 2018, our state’s seven Ronald McDonald Houses served 3,840 families, with 50,786 family night stays, and our mission was made possible by the help of 24,653 volunteers.
