Winston-Salem’s Ronald McDonald House is 30-years-old and is marking the milestone by asking the community to support its mission.

Located on Hawthorne Road, the House has provided “a home away from home” for families with a child receiving medical treatment at area hospitals since 1984. Initially, the House was equipped with ten rooms but in order to serve the needs of more families, it has grown to 35 rooms. The largest expansion was completed in 2010 and enables the organization to serve more than 1,000 families every year. The House has served more than 10,000 families since it opened. It remains the only organization in Winston-Salem dedicated solely to providing housing to families of sick children.

“We never knew we needed a Ronald McDonald House until we had one. Now we can’t imagine life without it,” said Dr. Steven M. Block, a former board member.

The Ronald McDonald House has launched “30 Ways to Celebrate 30,” a campaign that suggests ways to support the House like holding a Wish List drive, sponsoring a family and visiting the House.

Also, several local businesses are donating proceeds from sales throughout September to the House. They include the Village Tavern, Kilwins, Gigi’s Cupcakes and Brynn’s Frozen Yogurt.
