KAMLOOPS — The Tournament Capital will be home to a Ronald McDonald House in the future.

An Interior Health Authority spokesperson says a Ronald McDonald House will be allocated approximately 1,000 square feet once the patient care tower project at Royal Inland Hospital is in phase two of renovations.

"Completion of this phase is anticipated for late 2024," Karl Hardt with Interior Health says in an email today, May 7.

A Ronald McDonald House would give out of town families a nearby place to stay while their child is being treated in hospital, according to the Ronald McDonald House Charity website.

Coincidently, tomorrow is McHappy Day and when you purchase select items, $1 will go to support Ronald McDonald House Charities. Since the fundraiser was founded in 1977, McHappy Day has raised more than $56 million for charities across the country.
