DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Ronald McDonald House Charities Dayton asked people to “Give a Little Love” to support families and help them stay close to their children in the hospital.

The charity is celebrating more than 40 years of providing community, comfort and hope to families of sick or injured children. This is WDTN’s second year holding a virtual telethon to help make that happen.

Thanks to all of our generous donors throughout the Miami Valley, WDTN raised $4,305 for Ronald McDonald House Charities. Many of our callers told us they planned to mail a check, so the final results are still pending.

We initially recommended a donation of $40 but our viewers really delivered — donors doubled that, with an average donation of $80.

Thanks to all of our volunteers and donors for making this possible!
