Our expenses continue to be higher than normal this year and we are planning for increased expenses next year. We closed the Ronald McDonald House for five months because of COVID-19 and during the closure we paid for families with sick children to stay in hotels. We have re-opened the House and are welcoming families to stay with us. But we are limiting visitors including the wonderful volunteers who used to come here to cook meals for our families. Without our volunteer Chef-for-a-Day program, we are buying individual meals for families. Your gift is helping us continue to meet the needs of the families we serve.
