Funding from the RBC Wealth Management Foundation helps families that have very sick children.
“This funding helps us continue to offer a comfortable home-away-from-home for families who come to Tucson for their child’s medical care,” said Kate Maguire Jensen, president & CEO. “When a family has a sick child, the last thing they should have to think about it is where to stay and how to pay for it. Funding from RBC Foundation ensures that families can stay at the Ronald McDonald House as long as they need to, at no cost.”
“We are very grateful to RBC for this incredible source of support for the children and families we serve.”
