Opening of the 300th House worldwide!
October 04, 2010
The 300th House worldwide was opened in St. Louis, USA on Tuesday, September 29.
The St. Louis House will support West County hospitals which serve 700 children per year traveling to St. Louis to receive treatment. Families staying at the House will now be able to stay close to their children and fight the illness together.
In commemoration of the opening of this 300th House, USA Today ran a full-page advertisement. USA Today is a U.S. newspaper company that supports House activities.
36 years have passed since the first House was opened in Philadelphia in 1974. Today, the Ronald McDonald House activities are continuing to expand in countries around the world.
