RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES OF AUSTIN AND CENTRAL TEXAS INC
April 27, 2011

I was an intern at Ronald McDonald House Charities in Austin for four months and I could not have asked for a better place to work! Everyone was so welcoming and the fun environment felt like one big family. Even though I was there to help them out, they went out of their way to help me by allowing me to take on many fun projects as well as connecting me to as many people as possible.

Although the new House is big and beautiful, there is still limited space since there are so many families in need.
