FM Area—A generous gift to the Ronald McDonald Houses of Fargo-Moorhead.

The charity tweeted earlier this week that the Cullen Children's Foundation has donated $100,000 to go towards the playroom at the new Ronald McDonald House.

The house will be located near the Sanford Medical Center and will replace the current two houses.

Staff with the Ronald McDonald House says they wouldn't be able to help as many kids as they do without this kind of generosity.

"For a gift in the six figures like this, it's so amazing. It really makes it validates what we do, in that people think it's an important Program that we have here in Fargo-Moorhead," said Jill Christopher, Executive Director.

The new Ronald McDonald house will open up in May.
