How You Can Help The Ronald McDonald House

Posted on: December 16th, 2013 by

It’s that time of year where we are all looking for ways to give back. I’m always looking for something that we can do as a family. This year we decided to look into the Ronald McDonald House.

The Ronald McDonald House provides hospitality to families that face the hardships and struggles of living life with sick children. Located here in the “Healthcare City,” the Ronald McDonald House provides a “home away from home” for families who are caring for their sick children. With the help of volunteers, donations and fundraising, the Ronald McDonald House is able to provide a caring environment with home-cooked meals and offering support.
