BUFORD -- La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries of Atlanta donated more than $5,000 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities at the Gatewood House near Emory University.

According to its website, the Ronald McDonald House Charities provide families with a "home away from home" while their children receive treatment in a nearby hospital or medical facility. Family members can sleep, eat, relax and find support from other families in similar situations.

Since 1974, Ronald McDonald Houses have helped more than 10 million families in need. There are currently 174 Ronald McDonald Houses in North America.
