For the last month or so, we have had boxes available in each of our eight offices to collect much-needed donations for the Ronald McDonald House in Bangor, and last week we were able to present these items to the Executive Director and House Manager, Darlene MacLeod.
Ronald McDonald House is a home away from home for the families of sick or injured children receiving treatment in Bangor. The costs of food and lodging for families waiting for treatment for their children can be overwhelming, and the Ronald McDonald House provides a place for families to stay in a friendly, cozy environment.
Ronald McDonald House Charities began in 1974 with the first house in Philadelphia, and has grown to over 300 houses in 58 countries, along with other branches of the organization that help children and families in many different ways.
Ronald McDonald House of Bangor was opened in December 1983, and recently celebrated its 30th anniversary. You can stay updated on their needs at their Facebook page. Like their page to get the wishlist of the week! Also, check out this list of things needed on a regular basis, and bring them in to an F.A. Peabody office near you!
