Shared the Gift of a Homemade Italian Meal at Ronald McDonald House

The Associazione Campani Nel Mondo of BC once again shared the gift of a homemade Italian meal with the children and their families. Having a night off from cooking is a huge relief for the thousands of families who call Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon home each year. We bring together our Campani directors and volunteers to cook a healthy, delicious meal for the families. For over thirty years, Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon (RMH BC) has been providing accommodation for seriously ill children and their families when they must travel to Vancouver for their child’s major treatment. Since 1983, they welcomed families at the 13-bedroom home in Shaughnessy, but the need for their services is much greater. In 2013, they began construction on a new 73-bedroom House, conveniently located on the grounds of BC Children’s Hospital. Their New House, which opened on July 7, 2014, serves 2,000 families each year in spacious suites with private washrooms. With a larger House come expanded services for children and families including a fitness room, arts and crafts studio, magic room, LEGO lounge, and several comfortable indoor and outdoor lounges which encourage guests to come together. Built to LEED Gold Standard, the new House reduces the organization’s carbon footprint and reflects the natural beauty of the BC and Yukon communities that the families come from. On June 2, 2014, they also opened the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Surrey Memorial Hospital. A house within the hospital, a Ronald McDonald Family Room is a welcoming refuge for families of children admitted for treatment. The Room includes four overnight sleeping rooms, kitchen and laundry facilities, and a comfortable lounge with TV and internet access. Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon is owned and operated by the Children’s Family House Society of BC, an independent, Board-directed, non-profit organization. The House is managed with a small staff and dedicated volunteers.
Associazione Campani Nel Mondo of BC looks forward to many more years of sharing the Gift of Homemade Italian Meal to the Ronald McDonald House children and their families.
