#GivingTuesday Book Drive Project
We are proud to support* the Ronald McDonald House Charities which provides a home away from home, free of charge, for families with children who are terminally ill or facing life-threatening challenges. Staffed by volunteers and supported by generous donors, the House offers much more than just home-cooked meals and a comfortable place to stay. They help families face the burdens of childhood illness by providing a loving, compassionate environment where they can rest without having to worry about basic necessities. The support they receive from the house allows them to focus on what’s really important: their child’s recovery. It is also a place where families can connect with one another, sharing concerns, stories, hopes and encouragement. Our #GivingTuesday project 2017 goal is to raise at least $1,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities and donate over 250 books to children and their families to enjoy in their RMHC of the Capital Region homes.
