Local Ronald McDonald House Renovation

Wikoff Design Studio (WDS) is donating time and services to help the local Ronald McDonald House redesign all 12 bedrooms.

The renovations will include new plumbing, flooring, electrical, and furniture for all 12 bedrooms. Construction is set to begin in 2020, and the project will be completed in sections to ensure the House remains open to the families it serves.

Funding for the Project

The $200,000 dollar project was funded by the generosity of the community and the William N. Pennington Foundation. The outpouring of support for RMHC® at the recent Red Shoe Gala was overwhelming, as attendees donated $100,000 during the live auction and paddle raise portions of the event, which the Pennington Foundation offered to match in support of renovations to the 30+-year-old Ronald McDonald House. All $200,000 will be used for the remodeling project.

About Ronald McDonald House Charities® Northern Nevada (RMHC® Northern Nevada)

The Ronald McDonald House provides comfort and care to children and their families by providing a  “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost.

Many families travel far from home and spend several weeks or months to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children – a long time to be away or to divide a family. For children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having mom and dad close by for love and support.

At every House, families can enjoy:

  • Home-cooked meals
  • Private bedrooms
  • Playrooms for children

WDS is happy to help the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northern Nevada redesign their existing rooms and bathrooms. The renovated rooms will further help the children who receive treatment at the local Reno hospitals and their families.
