The RMHC in Savannah is an amazing group of people whose caring individuals impact everyone who comes in contact with them. The constant support and care for the families whose children are hospitalized is a bright spot during a terrible time. They opportunities for the public to learn and be involved amazes me. No matter the age or stage in life there is always a way to become involved and part of the RMHC family. My children have helped prepare meals for the families through our church and taken pause to count their blessings. We have collected pop tabs for several years, and will even pick up discarded ones to add to our collection houses. We also attend several fund raisers every year.

I could go on and on. I cannot say enough how honored I feel to be involved with such an amazing organization and how thankful I am that we have RMHC in our community.

I have had a chance to volunteer and expose my children to people whose lives are very different from theirs . They have also learned to give of their time to benefit others - that they have never and will never know.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them even greater exposure.

I'm a physician in Savannah and see the wonderful work done at RMHC firsthand. They are a wonderful resource for outlying families who otherwise would either have to spend hundreds of dollars for a motel, or simply be unable to visit their sick children in the hospital. The House is clean and cheerful and has a fabulous support staff. I've heard nothing but praise from the families that have stayed here. RMHC is a treasure.

make the house bigger

I have been involved with The Ronald McDonald house for many years. In college, it was our philanthropy of choice and now that I am a parent, I am getting my children involved. My daughter enjoys taking pop tops to the house, touring the facility, and finding out all of the good that they do for the community. I feel that the employees and volunteers at the RMH go above and beyond when it comes to making a family feel at home and providing for their physical and emotional needs. It is wonderful to know that there is a place for all if and when an occasion arises and one should need such resources.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

teaching my children the reason in which the house exists... for families of sick babies and children in our community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change a thing. It is run with lots of love and caring by many hard working and wonderful individuals.

The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile is invaluable to the children of our school district who live in poverty in our County. If it weren't for their help, many children would go without dental care. Without dental help, the children may be unable to concentrate on their school work. The $5000 would be a great assistance to them to help continue their mission in our district.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Meeting with members of their team and seeing the results of their work.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find ways to make sure the service continues.

Thank God I haven't every had to personally deal with them, BUT I do know people who've experienced their kind compassion and think they deserve credit for all they do.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of the CoastaL Empire is doing a very good job of serving families in our area. The organization is well run and respected by the community. The $5,000 grant prize will go a long way in helping them serve more families in the CoastaL Empire area.
