The funding will support general operations at the RMHC location in Winfield, Illinois, as well ascatered and cooked meals at the Lurie and Comer houses.

Throughout the year, Northwestern Mutual’s Downers Grove-based firm engages in several opportunities to support children and families affected by childhood cancer, including prepping meals, collecting pop tabs and holding an annual collection of items for RMHC each February. In addition to supporting RMHC, the firm offers fundraising opportunities throughout the year in support of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

“Engaging in opportunities in the community that make an impact and support families affected by childhood cancer inspires us,” said Ryan Kramer, managing partner of Northwestern Mutual – Chicagoland. “We are honored to support the Ronald McDonald House in Winfield with a two-year room sponsorship which will provide over 260 nights of families being able to stay together and close to their sick child.”

Northwestern Mutual’s Chicago-based firm is supporting the RMHC in Chicagoland by providing catered and cooked meals for families of children with childhood cancer. Each year, the Chicago office cooks at the RMHC houses and hosts an annual toiletry drive to help families feel comfortable on their first night. Additionally, the firm coordinates monthly incentives around childhood cancer, including hosting a gift card drive to support families at RMHC in Chicagoland and hosting an annual golf outing to support Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

“We take pride in our efforts to support childhood cancer and childhood cancer research, both on a national and local level,” said Corey McQuade, managing partner of Northwestern Mutual – Chicago. “We are proud to deepen our partnership with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland, which will allow us to expand our impact in the community.”

Since 2012, Northwestern Mutual’s Childhood Cancer Program has focused on accelerating the search for better treatments and cures for childhood cancer, while supporting families undergoing treatment and survivors suffering from the lasting effects. With the support of its employees and financial advisors nationwide, the company has contributed more than $45 million and funded over 520,000 hours of research through the program.
