On Wednesday, December 21, 2011, we officially welcomed our first families into the Long Beach Ronald McDonald House. Since then, the House has provided 35,000 room nights and services to families of critically ill children at a value of over $2 million. To recognize and celebrate the Long Beach Community for making this possible, we are launching a five-month-campaign to collect 500 gifts to ensure the House can continue to support families in need.
This month, we are recognizing our Hospital Five. Not only do these partners help guide us in providing the services and support families need to heal, they also give their time, energy and other resources directly to our families so they can focus on what’s most important – the care and well-being of their critically-ill children.
Together, we are able to provide the family-centered care that is so important to the treatment of children. We are grateful for their partnership in providing comfort and care to kids and their families. Be sure to visit our Facebook page frequently throughout September to meet some of our Hospital partners who help to make our House a Home.
We couldn’t support our families without each and every one of you putting a whole lot of loving into your giving. On behalf of the families we serve, we are eternally grateful for all you do.
Be sure to visit our Facebook page frequently through October to meet some of the people and organizations who help to make our House a Home.
