Local Art Pieces Brighten Smiles and Spaces
In January, we told you about Seventeen-year-old Jonathan, the very first guest to stay at the Peoria Ronald McDonald House®. He experienced firsthand what a healing environment can do for his health. His dad recently told us that Jonathan's numbers tracked for his illness have been improving since moving into Ronald McDonald House, and that Jonathan is producing hemoglobin for the first time in three months!
Well, Jonathan has been raving about some of the incredible art located throughout the Peoria House too! He even has a favorite, “Pollinators Delight,” which features a series of honeybee macro images hanging just outside the kitchen and dining area.
Thank you to the many local and regional artists who have helped make the Peoria House a place of comfort and support for our families in need.
And thank you to the many volunteers, including some of the artists pictured here, who spent hours hanging the artwork in the House before we opened!
