Helping better the lives of children
“Our ultimate goal is to help better the lives of children in Newfoundland and Labrador,” Scott stated.
When completed, the Ronald Mcdonald house will be the first in the province and will bring the total number of Canadian Ronald Mcdonald Houses to 13.
It has been 17 years since a new Ronald Mcdonald House has opened in Canada. Located within a five minute walk from the Janeway Children’s Hospital, the new house will support families from across Newfoundland and Labrador who have to travel to St. John’s for their child’s medical treatment.
With a capital requirement of $4 million to bring a Ronald Mcdonald House to Newfoundland and Labrador, Mcdonald’s Restuarants across this province are donating 100 per cent of all proceeds from this year’s Mchappy Day.
