COLORADO SPRINGS — The new Ronald McDonald House in Colorado Springs needs the community's support.

Because of COVID-19, the organization can't use all 20 bedrooms in their facility next to Children's Hospital. To work around this, they are putting families up in hotel rooms.

They have also had to close all of their community spaces and activity rooms but are still providing meals, care packages, and some cleaning supplies to their families.

I'll be honest, it's really hard. It's really hard. I know it's the right thing to do. We need to spread these families out. We have twenty beautiful bedrooms but not all twenty bedrooms are filled right now. We're trying to make sure that everyone keeps their space," said ...

The organization could use some coloring books for adults and kids, as well as activity books, puzzles, and snack. If you can help out, give them a call.
