Team Members Selected and Donated Items to the Ronald McDonald House Charities
In honor of the holiday season, ReidGoodwin spread some cheer by giving back to their communities in Richmond and Roanoke. This week, team members at ReidGoodwin were split up and asked to select items from the Ronald McDonald House Charities’ Gift Wish Lists for Richmond and Roanoke. They will be donating the items to the houses in those areas. These items ranged from household products to toys and games for the children and families they serve. ReidGoodwin enjoyed this opportunity to support a foundation that assists families in their times of need, when loved ones become ill and need extended medical treatments.
RMHC, Ronald McDonald House Charities, was created in 1974 to assist families with children being treated at local hospitals. They provide housing and family rooms to help lessen the burden and to provide access to family-centered health care. Often times, sick children may need to endure weeks of treatment at hospitals that aren’t close to their homes. RMHC helps keep families together by giving them a place to stay when this happens. They have over 64 chapters located around the world, including Roanoke and Richmond, VA. They offer many different ways to get involved, providing opportunities to volunteer and donate items. You can visit their website to take a look at their wish lists or to check out their “Raise Love” campaign which will help provide overnight stays for families.
We are excited to have the opportunity to give back to such a valuable part of our community this holiday season. We hope that you will find a way to spread some holiday cheer and partake in this season of giving.
