Thank you for showing a common interest in support of an organization where all funds donated stay local and directly impact the community we live in!

The Ronald McDonald House has been a special place that has assisted our organization internally and has impacted families close to us! We are proud to assist in any way we can.

My personal reason for donating starts when my son was born and immediately whisked away to the NICU. I had no idea what was wrong with him and so many tests were ran. It was an extremely scary time for me, especially because I knew I was going to be released from the hospital and he was not. 

A rep from the House came into my room the day of my release to assure me they had a space for me at the house if I needed it to make sure I was close to my son at all times during his stay. In that moment I realized how blessed I was to have the means to get back and forth to the hospital daily, whereas many others simply do not have that option. A lot of families find themselves in a strange city, away from home and suddenly worry about how they will get through the time of their loved ones' stay in the hospital. This organization takes that extra stress away. 

This is why I donate! 

On behalf of my entire team, I'd like to thank you for showing your support!
