SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central New York is temporarily opening its doors to support front-line healthcare workers.
The nonprofit organization will turn over occupancy to Upstate University Hospital workers to provide emergency sleep accommodations.
With the exception of a modest cleaning fee, the use of the Ronald McDonald House will be free.
While the CNY Ronald McDonald House remains closed to guest families, RMHC of CNY continues to support families with seriously ill children and keep them close. The nonprofit made alternative accommodations at a local hotel for the guest families that were staying at the House at the onset of the pandemic, and is providing the families with daily meal vouchers and checking in with them to offer support. RMHC of CNY is covering the associated costs so that families can continue to focus on what really matters: the health and well-being of their child.
