This is a fabulous organization with stellar leadership. I have seen Little Helping Hands in action at Austin's Ronald McDonald House preparing meals for our guest families. The adults are well organized and the children work hard and are well behaved. They provide a tremendous service to our families who are facing the hospitalization of their child and very challenging circumstances.
