The Sacramento Ronald McDonald House recently broke ground on a project to double the capacity of its housing facility located at 49th Street on the U.C. Davis Medical Center campus with a $6 million expansion. The expansion will add 20 bedrooms to the existing 18 bedroom facility, and add a kitchen, dining area, indoor playroom and fitness facilities. The 18,000 square foot expansion was made possible from a variety of fundraising efforts.
There are a total of 11 Ronald McDonald’s Houses in California. Reportedly, McDonald’s funds approximately 16% of the financial needs, which includes donating $0.15 for each McFlurry sold.
