It’s the classic good news-bad news scenario.
Springfield’s Ronald McDonald House is announcing a significant renovation that will allow it to serve more families every night, and will update the interior and exterior of the 28-year-old home. But the $1.2 million project will force the closure of the home for four months or more.
The House provides shelter and other assistance to families who have children in one of the city’s major hospitals… but is often filled to capacity. The project will add two more family rooms. The home is slated to be closed from June to October… a fundraising campaign to support the renovation effort is also now underway.
