HONOLULU – With just a click of a mouse, everyone can now instantly “visit” Ronald McDonald House Charities of Hawaii (RMHC-HI)! Families, volunteers, supporters and those who are just curious about RMHC-HI can take a self-directed, 360-degree virtual tour inside its three facilities: the Judd Hillside and Oahu Avenue Houses and its Family Room at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children.

“This new, virtual way to take a look at our facilities is not only innovative and fun, but also serves as an introduction to the Houses and Family Room for both distant referring agencies and families who are considering staying here.  These families may find comfort in knowing what to expect upon arrival,” said Jerri Chong, President of RMHC-Hawaii. “We would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to 360 Island Tours for donating their time and energy into creating such a valuable tool for RMHC-HI.”
