RHMC Michiana receives $3,000 grant from the Michigan Gateway Community Foundation Youth Advisory Council

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Ronald McDonald House Charities of Michiana has received a $3,000 grant from the Michigan Gateway Community Foundation Youth Advisory Council for refreshing laundry amenities at their house located in South Bend.

 “This grant will allow us to provide an even greater level of service to our families,” said RMHC Michiana Chief Executive Officer, Kierstin Eifler. “Doing a load of laundry and having clean clothes can mean such a difference to a parent whose child is in the hospital. Any moment of respite that we can provide to families means so much, and the Michigan Gateway Community Foundation Youth Advisory Council is helping us do just that.”

RMHC Michiana serves families of sick and injured children receiving care at Beacon Children's Hospital in South Bend with housing families overnight, providing meals, showers and laundry services.

In 2021, RMHC Michiana hosted 225 nights for families from Cass County in Michigan. Berrien County was also a top 5 county served by RMHC Michiana in 2021 with six percent of RMHC Michiana's total nights provided.
