Help Make the World’s Largest Ronald McDonald House a Home

What is the “Help Make This House a Home” campaign?

Coldwell Banker is sponsoring the Ronald McDonald House Charities “wish list” for their newest—and also the world’s largest—Ronald McDonald House near Lurie Children’s Hospital opening summer 2012 in Chicago. This “wish list” covers everything that families could need at the House while their children are in the hospital. These donated items will truly “Help Make This House a Home.”
