Everstream, the business-only fiber network, has announced plans to provide local Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Chapters with a daily meal in seven of its markets for 30 days, beginning today (April 13) in several markets, the company said.
Everstream will support the following seven Ronald McDonald House locations — in cities where the company has local offices, to serve an estimated 295 meals daily — feeding between 8 and 100 people at each House, including families and staff.
Cleveland: Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland
Chicago: Ronald McDonald House near UChicago Medicine Comer Children´s Hospital
Columbus, Ohio: Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio
Grand Rapids, Michigan: Ronald McDonald House of Western Michigan
Indianapolis: Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana
Milwaukee: Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Wisconsin

Ronald McDonald House programs provide comfort, support and resources to families with ill or injured children being treated at nearby hospitals and medical facilities. Stays can range from one night to several months and sometimes extend to a year or more. There are more than 375 Ronald McDonald House programs globally. Each program compassionately addresses and directly improves the well-being of the diverse children and families they serve.
To further support these seven communities during the current COVID-19 pandemic, Everstream will order meals from local restaurants exclusively to assist as many businesses as possible. Everstream´s local office managers will coordinate the daily order and delivery process. Everstream will provide lunch or dinner for a total of 30 days. Meals and dates will be determined by donation availability and location.
Everstream selected Ronald McDonald House Charities as its corporate beneficiary for 2020, with plans to help RMHC through several regular initiatives and volunteer opportunities across its Midwest footprint.
