Yes the holidays are over, but we wanted to bring you one more story of good cheer before we get back into the bustle of the new year. Last month, Marcone Canada partnered with Electrolux to bring toys and everyday necessities to the families at Ronald McDonald House Hamilton in southeastern Ontario. Read the recap and kind words sent to us by Electrolux student intern and RMH volunteer Lauren Pucci:
Thank you for the generous donations you and everyone at Marcone have provided to The Ronald McDonald House Hamilton. With all of the donations gathered between your company and Electrolux this year, the families staying at the house will have an unforgettable Christmas despite being so far away from home. The chalk may be one of the most creative and exciting gifts to give the house this year, as just this summer we renovated the playground in the backyard and all the walls outside are chalk-friendly. The kids will go nuts for this! The pens and notepads will also come in handy for parents to keep track of doctors appointments and notes from hospital visits. All of the additional toys and assorted goodies you have provided will be put in the “Winter Wonderland” at the house where the kids will be able to go in on Christmas morning to pick out a special treat. Again, thank you so much for all of this. Without your help we would not have been able to fill our stockings!
As we approach the end of 2014, I want to extend my warmest wishes from myself and on behalf of the Ronald McDonald House Hamilton for a healthy and safe holiday season. Thank you for all of your help and support.
