20150127_164628Ronald McDonald Houses provide a home away from home for the families of seriously ill children who are staying at a nearby hospital. In Toronto, the charity owns a house near the “Sick Kids” hospital. It opened in 1981 and now has 81 bedrooms. Each year, 759 families living far from the hospital find affordable accommodation at the Ronald McDonald House for the entire duration of their child’s hospitalization.

Last January 27, 15 employees from the Toronto office working at CIB and BNP Paribas Investment Partners gathered to cook dinner for the families housed at the Toronto RMHC location, as part of the “Home For Dinner” program.
