April was National Volunteer Month! Our regular volunteer opportunities have continued to be suspended for the safety of our guests and their families. However, we cannot stress enough how much we miss and value the work our volunteers do at both the Peoria and Springfield Houses. From greeting guests and helping keep things tidy to making meals and stocking our shelves with supplies, you are the heart of what makes both central Illinois Houses a home. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for everything you do and we hope to see you soon!

For the 4th year, On the Go Boutique designated several items as “Ronald McDonald House” pieces, where all of the proceeds are donated to our charity, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois. This year, the boutique was able to donate $7,300! We are so grateful for this continued support.

To put this support into perspective, we estimate that it would cost our families – who are never asked to pay – $88 per night to stay at either of our Houses. This donation alone would provide over 82 nights of stay for a family! Thank you, On the Go Boutique!
