We’re proud to give you a virtual tour of our new Ronald McDonald House – check it out!
Nor-Son, Inc. was the construction manager for our new Ronald McDonald House. The new house is located at 4757 Agassiz Crossing Dr. S. in Fargo, ND. The team we worked with at Nor-Son has been incredibly helpful, going above and beyond to ensure a successful and beautiful space for families to find comfort after a long day. Nor-Son has worked diligently so that the Ronald McDonald House in Fargo can continue helping families stay together. It has been a delight working with the team at Nor-Son throughout the entire building process.

Judy Greene has been a weekly volunteer as a Heartwarmer here at the South Ronald McDonald House for the last 13 years. We asked her a few questions about her volunteer experience with RMHC.
What got you started volunteering here?

Foss Architecture & Interiors acted as our architect and interior designer for our new Ronald McDonald House. The new house is located at 4757 Agassiz Crossing Dr. S. in Fargo, ND. The team we worked with at Foss has been incredibly helpful, going above and beyond to ensure a beautiful space for families to recharge. From the overall architecture to the paint color on the walls, Foss has worked diligently so that the Ronald McDonald House in Fargo can continue helping families stay together. It has been a delight working with the team at Foss throughout the entire planning and building process.
We interviewed Shari and Shelly of Foss so you can get to know part of the team too!
Talk briefly about your role at Foss Architecture & Interiors.
Foss’s role for this project was as a team. Shari being the design architect taking the project through design to documentation to construction administration. Shelly was the interior designer selecting finishes, designing interior details and preparing interiors documentation. But the Foss team extends past Shari and Shelly to include our project architect, specification writer, construction administrator and various others at Foss. Truly a team effort! Continue reading

Want to know what THEY do? I would love to tell you. April is the month of Volunteer Appreciation. We appreciate (love) our volunteers because they do ALL these things….#volunteerRMHC Continue reading
