The Ronald McDonald House of Providence is truly a home away from home for families going through serious medical situations. The staff and daily volunteers of the House are amazing & they take the time to get to know each family and make them feel welcome. The House is comforting, supportive and provides a must needed respite from the nearby hospitals.

I'm the Men's Soccer Coach at Johnson & Wales University in Providence. Myself, members of my staff and team have been volunteering both at the house and at the Walk Festival for the past 4 years. It's a small way for us to give back to the community but also to such a great organization that has provided for so many families over the years. We look forward to continuing our team's relationship with the Ronald McDonald House.

I have been a volunteer at the Providence Ronald McDonald House for 12 years. I came to the house initially as a thank you for the help the Spokane House gave my brother and sister-in-law when their first son was born. I continue to volunteer as I see the need for the help we provide. Parents are constantly telling me they don't know what they would have done without us. We provide a "home away from home" and help them through a very scary time in their lives.

I came to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House of Providence at a time when I was looking for an environment in which I could contribute meaningfully and interact with pleasant, interesting people. Having had contact with the house in NYC, I knew and was in sync with the mission and non-sectarian approach here. After retiring from a career directing a school and counseling and working with young families, the Ronald McDonald House has encouraged me to use my abilities and experiences in a wonderful variety of different ways. My life is considerably richer for being able to help families from every segment of our society at a vulnerable period in their lives.
