Laying it Forward with Ronald McDonald House in Atlanta

This is a great video about the Ronald McDonald House Atlanta/Gatewood, designed by Sims Patrick Studio.  A family that has been staying at Ronald McDonald House because of their son’s illness, shares that it is warm and inviting.  The mom describes it as having the beauty of a hotel with the warmth of a house she would want to live in.  They especially love that their young son looks forward to returning to the Ronald McDonald House, even though it means that he will have to endure further treatments.  He enjoys being there and has made friends with the other children there. 

Libby Patrick, Principal and CEO of Sims Patrick Studio, gives the viewer a tour of much of the Ronald McDonald House.  She also shares that Ronald McDonald Charities has a special place in her heart, as a childhood cancer survivor.

Lumber Liquidators donated over 8,000 square feet of flooring to this project, which is featured in the video.  The hardwoods are extremely durable and still look like new.

Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities provides a home away from home for families of ill and injured children who must travel to receive treatment at Atlanta area hospitals.  They are a beacon of hope for families during the worst crisis of their lives.  Families gain emotional support from other families going through similar experiences.  Caring staff and volunteers create a comfortable, loving environment that allows them to focus on the well-being of their child.
