The Ronald McDonald House is home to thousands of families every year who make the facility their home-away-from-home while their child is being treated at Nationwide Children's Hospital and other area hospitals in Columbus. Every night, hundreds of moms, dads, brothers and sisters stay at the Ronald McDonald House, which provides stability in the midst of challenging times. WOW! has brought the company's best in-home entertainment packages to the facility so residents can make their stay as enjoyable as possible.

"When we heard the largest Ronald McDonald House in the world was without cable video services, we knew we had to step in and fill this void," says Tyler Zvolanek, Columbus operations director WOW!. "WOW! is focused on treating our customers like neighbors, and we will continue to do everything we can to ensure Ronald McDonald House residents have the familiarity and comforts of home when they are in treatment."

WOW! has previously worked with Ronald McDonald House Charities in Cleveland, Charleston and Columbus. Whether preparing and serving food for residents, sponsoring rooms or providing WOW! services, WOW! supports Ronald McDonald House Charities in their efforts to provide a home-away-from-home experience for so many families in need across the country.
