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.

Chapter H was approached by a member about helping out with a Haunted House. They needed help in the parking lot with all the traffic in and out and parking cars.
This opportunity turned into a great partnership!
Not only did Chapter H help park cars, we brought so many helping hands to the events that we actually helped in the haunted house. We had so much fun scaring people, it was constant laughs.
The haunted house is located in Saboogla bottom in Calhoun Co in North Mississippi and is put on by a group called “The Freak Show”. They started this haunted house as a fund raiser to help a family in need. This concept goes hand in hand with what we as Dream Riders do. Dream Riders helps with sick children from ages 0-18 and The Freak Show will help families that have needs outside the realm of sick kids.
We have formed a partnership with this group of awesome people and will continue from here on out in the month of October every Friday night to be there to help with parking, help with scaring, help with what ever they need us to do.
If you see our flyers out in October 2017, come out and see what it is all about. And if there is ever a need that we can pass on to The Freak Show, we will be glad to lend a helping hand in that department also!
