Ronald McDonald House Charities of New Mexico

The expansion campaign completed in 2008 not only added more guestrooms to the Ronald McDonald House, it also brought modern amenities, added energy efficiencies and safety upgrades to the new wing. It is now time to bring the 28 year-old rooms in the original part of the House up to the standard of the new rooms.

“It’s important for every family who stays with us to have a similar accommodation and not feel they drew the “short straw” in terms of their assigned room” remarked Sharon Nolen, Operations Director.

To rectify this inequity, the Board of Directors approved a Renovation Project to bring all areas of the Ronald McDonald House up to modern standards to ensure the comfort and safety of all families who stay with us.

Britton Construction is honored to be selected as the contractor on this special project.
