This year in the spirit of giving back to the community The Crowther Group teamed up with the Ronald McDonald House for our first annual toy drive. Ronald McDonald House is a charity set up to help families of terminally ill children.
The first Ronald McDonald House opened in Philadelphia, PA, USA, in 1974, after recognizing the need for parents to stay close to their hospitalized children. As more House programs opened around the world, it became clear that caring for the family of a sick child was as important as caring for the child.
That was the beginning of the Roald McDonalds House’s unique role as a children’s charity, enabling, supporting and facilitating family-centered care. Ronald McDonald House programs, located near top children’s hospitals, allow parents who are far from home to stay close to their hospitalized child and benefit from the comforts of home without incurring hotel and food costs. Ronald McDonald Family Room programs offer a quiet respite for all families right in the hospital. And Ronald McDonald Care Mobile programs bring fundamental medical and dental care to underserved communities.
RMHC provides more than 1.4 million overnight stays each year, helping families save nearly over $443 million in lodging and meal expenses. For more information about Ronald McDonald House click here.
