RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE OF INDIANA INC
June 28, 2011

The Ronald McDonald House of Indiana is a great non-profit organization that sets forth exactly what it vies to do in its mission statement. As a previous intern, I got to see first-hand exactly what the House does and how important they are to the community. They are a home away from home for families with critically-ill children but they also go beyond that. The staff and volunteers all care about each individual that comes into the House and I know they do their jobs with pride. Furthermore, the events they hold to raise money and awareness for the House are top-notch (golf & poker tournaments, fundraising dinners, auctions) and are such events that include local celebrities and a loyal following of sponsors. Put it all together and it's easy to see why the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana is such an important non-profit to have around.
