FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - Ever drop some change into those canisters at your local McDonald's?

The change collected in the McDonald’s canisters provides nearly 40% of the annual operating revenue which allows sick or injured children to stay at the Ronald McDonald House for free. Parkview Regional Medical Center held an open house tour of the new Ronald McDonald House on Sunday.

The facility has 11 guest rooms, a large kitchen and dining room, and a laundry room. The Ronald McDonald House inside PRMC is only one in the region. It opens November 27th.
