BENEFITING: JUNIOR LEAGUE OF PORTLAND OREGON INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 22, 2011
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Oregon & Southwest Washington provides a “home away from home” for families and their seriously ill or injured children who travel far to receive treatment at Portland hospitals and supports children’s immunization and dental programs. Portland’s two Ronald McDonald Houses provide a setting in which families connect with other families and children can meet other children going through a similar experience. During their visits guests stay in comfortable and lovingly decorated private rooms where they can get a peaceful night’s rest, knowing their child is close by. Through the Outreach Programs, RMHC also supports programs that provide free immunizations and dental care to children throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington.
To accomplish this, we reply on the generosity of thousands of donors, the inenuity of local volunteers and the dedication of our staff. You can help out around the House by welcoming guests, preparing and cleaning rooms for new families, helping out with household chores, baking, assisting with clerical tasks, conducting House tours, being a supportive listener for families, making a meal for families, or helping out at one of our big events.
