CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Mecklenburg County, and soon the state of North Carolina, has stay-at-home orders in place to stop the potential spread of COVID-19.

This means that the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte no longer has volunteers to staff the facility, but they still have families staying there while their children are being treated in Charlotte area hospitals.

They have implemented social distancing, limited shared spaces, and have schedules for common areas like the laundry room and dining room.
The staff has been taking over cooking, cleaning, answering phones, and providing any help they can.

Kristin Young of Ronald McDonald House Charlotte said, “We are in this together and we will get through this. We can’t wait to see you guys on the other side and then we can’t wait to see you guys back on the house volunteering.”

Until you can get back in to volunteer in person, there are still ways you can help from home.
