If you follow me on social media, or have met me at your local comic con, you know that I'm a strong advocate for the Ronald McDonald House Charities' mission of keeping family close when a child is seriously ill. I've donated to RMHCs all over North America, but the staff and volunteers at the Fargo house have become a long distance family. Let's return that love!
"With the continued growth of the pediatric medical families in Fargo, the demand for the Ronald McDonald House has continued to grow. With this growth and the need to address concerns about our current facilities, we are building a new Ronald McDonald House in Fargo.
"Our new Ronald McDonald House will be a 24-bedroom, 26,000 square foot facility strategically located near I-94 as a replacement of our two current houses. This expansion will provide much-needed space for our families as well as improve the experience families share as they find support and healing at the Ronald McDonald House.
"The Ronald McDonald House was born out of need – a need for families to be close to their sick child without having to sleep on the floor, in their car or other less than suitable places. In 1977, the idea for a Ronald McDonald House in Fargo was born. Over the next 5 years, a group of concerned citizens worked to make their dream a reality and, in December 1982, that dream came true. The first Fargo Ronald McDonald House was opened at 1234 N Broadway and could house up to 6 families. By the early 2000s, that 6-bedroom house was full consistently and the search began for a second family space. With much thanks to Dakota Medical Foundation, a second Ronald McDonald House was opened at 1330 18th Ave S in Fargo in 2005."
