A makeover for the Ronald McDonald House in Charlottesville is nearly done, thanks in part to volunteers.

Two dozen volunteers from the Kiwanis Club gathered to put the some of the final touches on the house. Most of the work included unpacking new furniture, attaching floor protectors and assembling carpet tiles.

"We actually have a lot of fun doing this. We do this on the fourth Monday of every month. Instead of a regular meeting we actually go to a local nonprofit and do whatever they want us to do,” said Rob Ribando, president of the Kiwanis Club.

The makeover for the house began last summer. Some work still needs to be completed. Families should be able to move back into the house in early March.

The Ronald McDonald House offers a place to say for families of seriously ill children being treated at the University of Virginia Medical Center.
