CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- The Ronald McDonald House of Charleston got a nice lift Thursday.

Thanks to the AT&T Pioneers organization, a group of company employees and retirees, the Ronald McDonald House has a new chairlift and 100 prepaid calling cards for families staying at the house.

"All of our families come from out of town, and so all of their phone calls back home are long distance," said Ronald McDonald House Executive Director Barbara Bond. "And that will just help them keep in touch with their families, with their jobs, without it being a big strain on their budgets."

The Ronald McDonald House provides housing and services for families with children facing serious illness in nearby hospitals. Barbara Bond says the support of the AT&T Pioneers has been there from the beginning.

The chairlift will help disabled children or family members reach the second floor at the Ronald McDonald House.
