AbbVie, a research-based biopharmaceutical company, has pledged a donation of $100 million to Ronald McDonald House Charities.
The donation, the largest gift in RMHC's history, will be used to build family-centered spaces and more than 600 new guest sleeping rooms in at least 26 states and at 32 Ronald McDonald Houses. This will allow for approximately 230,000 additional night stays for pediatric patients and their families each year.
The Fargo Ronald McDonald House will receive $322,484. The donation will round out the $5 million capital campaign launched to fund the new Ronald McDonald House that opened recently near Sanford Medical Center in south Fargo.
