Chapter A & H helping Ronald McDonald house
In November, Chapter A done their annual Ronald McDonald house supply run. They invited Chapter H to assist and be part of the action.
Once we finished shopping we carried the supplies straight to the Ronald McDonald house where they would be used and shared among the residents.
It was explained to us that each family has 30 days @ the home and once the 30 days are up they have to leave to make room for the next family. They can also be put back on rotation as often as need be.
We were able to take a tour of the facilities. Each room was set up like a motel room, there was a community wash room, with detergent and all other needs provided. Also, each family had their on kitchen area with a stove, refrigerator, cabinets and sink. Then their is a community refrigerator that would store goodies from local churches and community groups.
There was also a dinning room and living rooms for the families to use. There are no TV’s in the individual rooms so that the families are encouraged to spend time together.
It was a true eye opener to think about these families that need this support and how important Ronald McDonald is to families. It hit home thinking about how much we take for granite, when we have healthy kids.
We all look forward to next supply run, knowing we are lending a helping hand to those in need.
Thank you for all you do!
