RMHC of Idaho Growth Update: May

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

We’re so excited about the progress of the new House over the past month! If you look at our construction camera, you can see a lot of the framing is complete and trusses are starting to be placed. Framing will continue into May, so make sure to check back in throughout the month and watch the House come to life.

We are now at $10,173,215 raised for our “Room For Every Family” campaign and are continuing to fundraise so we can reach the $15.3 million goal. We’re also excited to share that Scentsy has chosen RMHC of Idaho as the beneficiary for their 6th annual Rock-a-Thon! Save the date for Friday, September 13th, rocking from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. followed by a party and fireworks show. All money raised through this event will go towards the new Ronald McDonald House.

Ronald McDonald Family Room® Update

A huge thank you to everyone who came out or tuned in on Facebook for the Ronald McDonald Family Room Construction Kickoff! We had a great turn out and everyone enjoyed taking a swing to celebrate the start of construction, If you missed the event, check out our Facebook livestream and view photos here. Just hours after the kickoff event, construction officially began on the Family Room and we anticipate the space will be up and running in late summer of 2019.

We’re grateful for all the support of the Family Room up to this point. Thanks to generous donors, we are now sitting at about $690,000 raised, leaving about $75,000 in order to reach our goal. You can help us reach the finish line by making a donation today.

Also, be sure to save the date for the 2019 Family Fun Day in Pocatello on June 8th! A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Ronald McDonald Family Room.

Check back next month for new updates on our expansion efforts!
