June Action Project

Beneficiary: Ronald McDonald House

The Ronald McDonald House is known as the “home away from home” or “the House that Love Built” to families traveling far from home seeking medical attention for their children. These titles are all in thanks to the commitment of volunteers and generosity of donors supporting families facing difficult days and long nights. The families share their stories and gain new insights as they meet children and parents with similar concerns. Together, we can help families, one child at a time. We hope everyone will join in this local effort. Donated items may be placed in the Action Box outside of the Lounge.
