The Ronald McDonald House’s goal is to provide a place for families to call home so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at no cost. The Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child.
Over 2021 and 2022, the Foundation and several of our Evergreen Devco business partners assisted the Aurora, Colorado House with much needed building improvements including the addition of a lower level laundry room, water filtration system, and replacement of lights, faucets, and appliances. The Foundation also sponsored several dinners during COVID. The Foundations goal in partnering with the Ronald McDonald House is to reduce operating costs and improve services to guests, which in turn allows the Houses to spend more of their annual budget to improve the quality of stay and level of support for families.
The Foundation’s 2023 goal is to continue to assist both the Denver and Aurora Ronald McDonald Houses. The Aurora House has some drainage issues, deferred exterior maintenance and minor building repairs to address. The Foundation would like to add a full-service laundry area and purchase new commercial laundry equipment for the Denver House, as well as complete a host of other building improvements. The Foundation will also continue to host meals.
In addition to monetary contributions, the Foundation is in need of contributions of materials and experienced labor for HVAC, plumbing, electrical and concrete work. If you would like to learn more or donate your time and resources, please contact Ron Wolford.
