A Great Night Volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House

Jul 27, 2017

Last night, our team had the privilege of preparing dinner for the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) here in Lexington, KY.

Our firm knows firsthand how much of a blessing the RMH can be. The son of a member of our firm underwent open heart surgery a few years ago in Cincinnati, OH. He was able to stay at the RMH located next door to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. His family even enjoyed a Thanksgiving dinner during their stay.

We are glad to have the opportunity to give back to such a wonderful organization.

They provide a “home away from home” so families can be with their children during a time of medical need. Today, there are 354 Ronald McDonald houses, 199 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, and 49 Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles.

Families are requested to donate $10 per night to help offset the cost, however, no family has ever been, or ever will be, turned away due to the inability to pay.
