...At the Ronald McDonald House, we are fortunate to watch connections and bonds made between our guests. It is meaningful to witness the support they lend each other. Yet, our guests are also connected to countless unknown souls who, because of their generosity have helped them to find a home while their child struggles with injury or illness. Your gift is an expression of understanding and sympathy for their difficult situation. This bond goes beyond any boundary; it touches the lives of our guests, their children, extended family, our volunteers, staff and board members. On behalf of all who have been touched by your gift, THANK YOU!...
