Another significant capital campaign could be starting soon.
Ronald McDonald House Charities in Springfield plans to begin a fundraising effort soon to upgrade and modernize its facility near St. John’s Hospital. Ronald McDonald House serves families from out-of-town whose children are receiving hospital treatment in Springfield. The house dates back to the early 1980s and is showing signs of wear and tear.
Executive director Kelly Thompson, appearing live on the 970 WMAY News Feed, says more details about the fundraising effort will be coming in a matter of weeks.
