In a perfect world, no child would be stricken with a major illness, but unfortunately this is not the case. To make matters worse, some of these children wind up receiving treatment far from home, requiring the family to stay in a hotel near the treatment center.
As Dish employees, family and friends, we have the opportunity to partner with the Ronald McDonald House of Central and Northern New Jersey, and help with providing a safe haven for these children and their families during this difficult time. All funds collected will go towards providing uniquely decorated rooms and amenities: a private bathroom, kitchen, laundry facillities and a garden with an outdoor play area. The rooms are fully equipped with TV's, video games, computers, etc. There are volunteers on-site providing home cooked meals and assisting with other tasks. All of this helps to provide a stress free environment which allows these families to feel comfortable and at home, while they are fighting for their child's life.
If you can find it in your heart to help in any way, it will be greatly appreciated. Even if that means simply spreading the word.
Thank you in advance for your contribution, together we can make a difference!
