BALTIMORE — Ronald McDonald House Charities Maryland is officially open at its new location.
The 60,000-square-foot building is on Aisquith Street in Jonestown, near Little Italy. It's more than double the size of the original house and will accommodate nearly 2,200 families every year.
"This has truly been a house that love has built, and we have felt the love from day one to this very day," said Francine Campbell a RMHC Maryland family member. "I know that all the families that may have to turn to this will know that they will be received by love."
The non-profit helps house families while their children are being cared for at local hospitals.
More than 40,000 families have stayed at Ronald McDonald House Charities Maryland since opening in 1982.
