Business helps make Ronald McDonald House home for families

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The Ronald McDonald House received new furniture Friday.

La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries dropped off dozens of items for the house.

The Ronald McDonald House helps families in need by providing affordable housing while children are hospitalized. Officials said they're glad to help. "There are people that are away from home, hundreds of miles away, have no place to stay other than maybe a hotel room," said Frank Wentz of La-Z-Boy, "Costing thousands of dollars is something great the Ronald McDonald House does for these people, and we just, we're a small part of it. And we're proud of that."

Friday's delivery is part of an ongoing partnership between La-Z-Boy and Ronald McDonald House charities.
