Since starting construction early this spring, the Ronald McDonald House is starting to take form. Set to be completed early in 2020, the original bungalow, now converted into a 4,000+ sq ft two storey house features 17 rooms which will be able to house 6 families at any given time.
“We were so fortunate to be connected with the Yuill family foundation a couple years ago, they had plans to build a home for adults being treated at the Margery E. Yuill Cancer Centre,” says Jason Evanson, CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities Alberta. “We introduced them to this idea that perhaps it could be a Ronald McDonald house instead and now we’re talking about this six bedroom facility opening up in early 2020 to serve families from the surrounding area.”
