restaurants adds up to more than $28,000,000 each

LOCAL HISTORY
In 1981 the Junior Service League of Sioux Falls
adopted the Ronald McDonald house as their
official project. In 1983 the property was
purchased and on December 21, 1983 the first
Ronald McDonald House in Sioux Falls was
opened, at 2001 South Norton Ave, the 55th in the
world.
TODAY
There are two Ronald McDonald Houses in Sioux Falls. An
8 bedroom house near Avera and an 18 bedroom
house near Sanford Children’s Hospital. These houses
are open to all families whose have children under 21
that are receiving treatment and no one is denied.
December of this year will be the 30th anniversary of the
Ronald McDonald house in South Dakota
Every year SDSU and NDSU compete for a pop tab
traveling trophy to see who can collect the most.

houses

You might need their help someday
