Holly Buckendahl; CEO, Ronald McDonald House Charities

Holly joined the Chapter as CEO in 2015. RMHC-CNI exists so families can get better together. Each night, we keep 162 families close to the care and resources they need through 5 Ronald McDonald Houses and 3 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms. Enabling families to stay close to their hospitalized child supports the well-being of the child and saves the family over $9 million in hotel and food costs each year. The Charity also operates the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile program, providing medical care to children in underserved areas. Prior to taking the helm at RMHC-CNI, Holly served as CEO of RMHC-Kansas City for seven years. Holly holds both a B.S. and a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Nebraska.
