HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- An organization that keeps loved ones close by when children need them the most -- is showing the community what it has to offer.
The Ronald McDonald House charities of the Tri-State hosted an open house, Sunday.
A group from Marshall University was on hand, singing Christmas carols. Plus, Ronald McDonald himself even stopped by.
WSAZ.com caught up with one family that has been staying at the house since March.
Jenna Deskins is from Forest Hills, Kentucky and has to be in Huntington for leukemia treatment.
"I'm very thankful we have her for Thanksgiving and Christmas and that she is going to be able to enjoy all the decorations," Shannon Deskins, Jenna's grandmother, said. "Everything is beautiful and it is like home."
Beginning Sunday night, the Ronald McDonald House will be lit up for the holiday season.
