Third Ronald McDonald House will be built near Children’s Mercy Hospital

The charity wants to eliminate a waiting list that turns away about 1,000 families a year. It has raised about $3.7 million in private funds for the $4.5 million project. Proceeds from a special Chiefs Red Friday magazine being sold for $2 today on street corners and at area McDonald’s restaurants will go toward the project.
