Does your area have a Ronald McDonald House?
We have one because of a wonderful children’s hospital located downtown.
My mother’s club picks an item (such as laundry detergent, travel size toothpastes, breakfast bars, etc) per month and we bring them to our meetings. At Christmas, we took up money and I divided it all into 10 dollar gift cards from Wal-Mart to be used as gifts for families staying over the holidays.
I am the liaison this year, the one who takes the items to the RMH. The boys love going with me to Ronald McDonald’s House. 🙂
This is a wonderful way of teaching my boys about this charity and the lesson of helping others. I have decided that when our mother’s club year ends in May, I am going to continue to donate items on my own. It is such a delightful feeling when the ladies working at RMH all but cry when I drop off bags of supplies.
Now my boys get to feel it, too.
Ways you can help a local RMH:
1. Donate items such as:
dishwashing liquid (sink and dishwasher)
shampoo/conditioner and other toiletries
travel size toothpaste and brushes
3. Save the pop tabs on your sodas
4. Donate money
5. Legacy Planning
