Southern Wesleyan University North Augusta is joining forces with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Augusta.
The Ronald McDonald House seeks to “provide nurturing and supportive environments and services to directly improve the health and well-being of children, and to bring comfort to their families,” according to its website.
The house opened in 1984 and has helped more than 16,000 families during that time, including 619 in 2013.
The house assists families by being a “home away from home for families with seriously ill, chronically ill, or injured children, ranging from newborn to age twenty-one, who must travel from home to area hospitals for specialized medical treatment(s).”
Southern Wesleyan University is a “Christ-centered, student-focused learning community devoted to transforming lives by challenging students to be dedicated scholars and servant-leaders who impact the world for Christ,” according to its website. The school is located at 802 East Martintown Road in Suite 101. With a donation, Southern Wesleyan University North Augusta will waive the application fee for any of its upcoming programs until April 30.
