Ronald McDonald House

Ronald McDonald House

In 1980 members of our Christ Child Society brought the idea of a Ronald McDonald House to Akron and that proposal was accepted by Akron Children's Hospital.Ground was broken in 1983 and the facility opened in January 1985. Our chapter pledged $10,000 to the initial building fund and volunteers have worked at the house ever since then.For many years we provided meals for the residents and when those requirements changed we continued to support the house with donations of pop tabs, soaps, paper products, cleaning supplies, personal items and anything else requested by Ronald McDonald House managers. Members also volunteered there until Covid-19 made that impossible.
