RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES OF THE COASTAL EMPIRE INC
February 25, 2011

The Ronald McDonald House in Savannah, GA is a community of sharing and caring, joy, tears, and smiles, blessings to the clients as well as the volunteers. I answered a request from the Christian Service committee at White Bluff Presbyterian Church. I worked each Tues for 25 years to provide support for families there by providing support when a child died or if parents needed to make a critical decision for a child's well-being. Most are happy memories as we tried to provide the comforts of home while clients were there. I grew in my faith and received many blessings as I worked to be a blessing to those staying there.

Most of the community at large does not understand what a wonderful service is provided by the RMH. I would encourage more publicity and recruiting of volunteers in different churches and schools.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & Held fund raisers - bake sales, contributions from my church, provided layettes for babies, knitted caps for babies, worked a shift every Tues for 15 years.
