RMHC of Idaho Growth Update: April
Each month, we will be updating you on all our expansion news, including updates on the new Ronald McDonald House in Boise and the Ronald McDonald Family Room in Idaho Falls.
Ronald McDonald House® Expansion Update
Concrete for the new Ronald McDonald House is officially poured and the framing has begun! Check out recent photos and a live view of the construction site as the beginning stages of framing are taking shape (figuratively and literally!).
We are continuing to fundraise through our “Room For Every Family” campaign and are still at $9.8 million raised. Make sure to look at our updated naming opportunities sheet, as there are still plenty of options available, including the courtyard, first and second floors, game room and living room alcoves.
Ronald McDonald Family Room® Update
On March 4, 5, and 6, we partnered with local Eastern Idaho media for our 1st annual “Fundraising for Families” campaign. During those three days of fundraising, we received more than $67,000 in donations and pledges for the Ronald McDonald Family Room® coming to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center. Additionally, $46,000 worth of furniture was donated for the Family Room. In support of the event, more than $25,000 of media was donated from I.E. Productions, Riverbend Communications, Channels 8, 5, and 3, Lamar Advertising, Post Register, Idaho Falls Magazine and EastIdahoNews.com to get the word out.
On Monday, April 22, we’ll be celebrating the start of construction for the Family Room through a construction kickoff event! You can be a part of this exciting milestone by liking our Facebook page and tuning into our Facebook livestream that day at noon.
Check back next month for new updates on our expansion efforts!
