RONALD McDONALD HOUSE FAMILIES KEEP IN TOUCH THANKS TO AT&T FAMILY PHONE

 INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 24 ~PRNewswire~ -- Seriously ill children and their families who stay at any of the 125 U.S. Ronald McDonald Houses will be able to keep in touch with loved ones over the holidays and throughout the year with free long-distance calls, courtesy of AT&T (NYSE: T). AT&T will provide each participating Ronald McDonald House with a specially designed AT&T Family Phone, as well as free domestic and international long-distance service.
 Stan Lacks Jr., AT&T vice president of consumer long-distance, and Jim Murray, president, Ronald McDonald House, International advisory board, will place an inaugural AT&T Family Phone call from the South Chicago Ronald McDonald House today (Tuesday, Nov. 24).
 The AT&T Family Phone will give families the chance to place calls to anywhere in the world that AT&T provides service. This service will last at least through the end of 1993. AT&T is making this donation because it has a strong commitment to family issues and in supporting family initiatives.
 Ronald McDonald Houses provide temporary lodging facilities for the families of seriously ill children being treated at nearby hospitals. The Houses have been providing home-away-from-home atmosphere since 1974. There are currently 125 Ronald McDonald Houses in the U.S. and 28 in other countries.
 Indiana's Ronald McDonald House is the largest house in the country with 50 guest rooms. It is at 435 Limestone in Indianapolis (317-269-2247).
