The Ronald McDonald House Charities will host a ribbon cutting on Thursday, July 24th starting at 4 p.m. at 3413 10th Street in Lubbock, Texas.

This event will celebrate the newest addition to the house.

Hopeful Healing Hearts came about in response to a need for Ronald McDonald House Charities to reach out to those in the community and those that have stayed in either the RMHC "House" or in a RMHC Family Room and have lost a child.

The program will include six aspects: Reflection Garden, Reflection Room, River of Peace, Hospice of Lubbock Partnership, Funeral Assistance and Family Courtyard.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Southwest keeps families together during their child's serious illness or injury. It's proven that children heal faster when their loved ones are close by.
