Operating out of Carrollton, Texas, Western Extrusions specializes in aluminum extrusions using its cutting-edge extrusion line, which is also capable of an impressive range of finishings and fabrications. Outside of its normal business operations, Western Extrusions supports local nonprofit groups, such as the Ronald McDonald House.

The main goal of the Ronald McDonald House is to provide a tangible benefit to children who are facing battles against significant illness, and the families who support and love them. The primary way that the organization accomplishes this is by providing lodging for families who need to stay nearby while their children undergo lengthy treatments.

The process for placement in a local Ronald McDonald House usually begins with a hospital social worker, who can refer families for services. Unfortunately, it’s currently not possible to reserve lodging in advance, so families will need to coordinate with the hospital’s social services upon arrival in order to receive lodging or be placed on a waiting list if applicable. Depending on the local policies of the board governing a specific house, there may or may not be a maximum length of stay, though most houses allow families to remain as long as the child is being treated.
