Dillard's Department Store gives Evansville's Ronald McDonald House a major boost. Store officials presented a $14,000 check this morning.

This continues an ongoing partnership between the two. Dillard's donated money from sales of a southern living cookbook sold during the holiday season.

"They've got kids that are in crisis medical situations," said Ronald McDonald House Executive Director Jeremy Evans. "And what we want to do is be by those parents, be there for them, provide them a shelter, a place to sleep, comfort, food, and emotional care, so that the parents can be by their kids bed side doing what they do best which is taking care of their kids."

The Ronald McDonald House has guest rooms for 10 families.
