The Ronald McDonald house is a great organization that solves a need in a lot of places throughout the country. When you hear Ronald McDonald you probably think of the big man with the funny red nose. Although he is the face for this organization, there is so much more to learn about.
This place houses families with sick children. Consider this... Your child is very sick and has to go to the hospital a lot. You have to worry about their health, your family's wellbeing, paying medical expenses, and the list goes on. The Ronald McDonald house provides a free living space for these people so that they have one less thing to worry about. It's a huge weight off their shoulders.
On top of this wonderful program, they have groups of people come in to make meals for the families so they have even less to worry about. Anyone can sign up to come in and cook. We chose to serve breakfast and made a casserole and muffins and brought fruit and juice. It was great to see the smiles on their faces, especially since they are going through some rough times! If you're looking for somewhere to volunteer, this is definitely a good place to start!
