EVENT: 2016 GO! FOR A CAUSE
EVENT DATE: Apr 10, 2016
I have been fortunate enough to be a part of Ronald McDonald House St Louis since February 2012 as a House Management Intern, House Parent, and now Assistant House Manager. Ronald McDonald House provides a home-away-from-home for families when they need it most. I get to witness miracles every day that happen when families remain together. All this is possible because members of the community step up and provide their time, talent, and treasure to help us continue our mission.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of St. Louis provides a “home-away-from home” for families of seriously ill children traveling to St. Louis for medical treatment. The organization has grown from an eight-bedroom facility in 1981 to now include three Houses, eight extended-stay apartments, and three Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, which are located inside Mercy Children’s Hospital, St. Louis Children’s Hospital and SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center. In 2013, RMHC St. Louis launched the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, a mobile vision clinic that delivers free eye care to underserved children, in partnership with the Eye Care Charity of Mid-America.
