About the Ronald McDonald House of Temple, Texas
The House offers 18 bedrooms with either twin or queen size beds. Each bedroom is connected to a personal bathroom. The rooms vary in size to accommodate all families. All rooms contain the appropriate bedding and towels. There are additional pull-outs in many rooms and roll-away beds are available. If you need personal toiletry items, see a staff member. We have a small supply of personal care items available for your use while you stay at the House.
We have two laundry facilities, each equipped with five washers and five dryers. We provide you with laundry detergent so that you may launder your own clothes, bed linens, and towels during your stay. Please be respectful of others when using the laundry room. Do not leave your clothes in the machines if you will not be able to finish your load within a reasonable amount of time. Extra towels and twin sheets can be found in the cabinets in the laundry room.
Services and Provisions
