Yesterday, companies from the region had the opportunity to learn more about the new Ronald McDonald House in Vogtareuth at an information breakfast. During the subsequent tour of the construction site, guests could see for themselves the development of construction at McDonald’s Children’s Aid Foundation’s new parental home.
From 2023, families will find a temporary home in 20 apartments on the grounds of the Schoen Clinic Vogtareuth, while the small patients will be treated in the Schoen Clinic across the street.
The shell of the new Ronald McDonald House is now complete – this milestone was taken as an opportunity for an information breakfast followed by an on-site inspection. Here, the company representatives present also gained insight into the work of McDonald’s child welfare and learned more about the construction project for families with seriously ill children.
> As a foundation, we go there with new construction projects where there is a need for a close-to-care clinic for families with seriously ill children. I am glad that in close collaboration with Schön Klinik we can soon make this offer also for families in Vogtareuth and thus help them able to support difficult illness situations.
With its range of medical services, the Schoen Clinic Vogtareuth is one of the most important hospitals in the care of seriously ill children with neurological and orthopedic diseases in Bavaria and beyond. With this expertise, the clinic attracts small patients from all over Germany. > We take care of families in an emotional emergency because their child is undergoing a serious operation, so it is important that you have a temporary home nearby. And this closeness is also important for another reason: Parents are the experts regarding her child; We also need this expertise in the medical treatment of the child.
The Parents’ House is the 23rd Ronald McDonald House of the McDonald’s Children’s Aid Foundation. In the future, 450 families will each year find a temporary home here while their child is being treated at the Schoen Clinic Vogtareuth. McDonald’s Children’s Aid Foundation is the developer and finances the construction of the new parental home from donations. At the information breakfast, entrepreneurs from the region had the opportunity to learn more about the construction project and about donation opportunities. McDonald’s franchisee Michael E. Heinritzi, who has been one of the biggest supporters of McDonald’s child welfare for decades and will also support the foundation’s new home as a sponsor, had also invited. > For me, it’s a matter of course to share professional success. It’s the first Ronald McDonald house in the Rosenheim region, so it’s clear I have to take responsibility for it and make it work.
McDonald’s Children’s Aid is funded primarily through donations, with a large portion of the donations coming from McDonald’s Germany and its franchisees; Another part comes from companies and individuals from the respective region or from other funds. Yesterday, Alexa Hubert from the Rosenheim Savings Banks Foundation symbolically presented a grant of 25,000 euros and thus took on a building sponsorship for the play paradise in Ronald McDonald House.
At the subsequent inspection, the guests present could get an impression of the progress of the construction and the premises, which in addition to family apartments also have comfortable common rooms. After the tour of the house, a McCafé stand gave guests the opportunity to round off with a small snack.
