We appreciated this review of the Ronald McDonald House from Kyle Miller’s blog about interdisciplinary explorations in sustainability. Kyle visited to learn about the green building aspects of our LEED Platinum certified House.
We especially appreciated these words of his that speak to our mission:
“Apart from the ‘green design’ element of the site tour, however, I was struck by the numerous examples of social sustainability. The House cultivates a unique sense of community among its temporary residents, promoting social interdependence and psychological wellness. It was also apparent that the House actively engages with its surrounding community, raising awareness through action, rather than advertisement. Indeed, it was these social aspects that I found to be the most enlightening, although it’s also wonderful to see non-profits leading charge for operational efficiency and innovation.”
Thanks for coming by, Kyle! Nice photo of the House, too!
Have you been in our Ronald McDonald House? Were you aware of any of the green building aspects of the House?
