Taking a Stand: Donate to Ronald McDonald House during the Holidays

Taking a Stand: Donate to Ronald McDonald House during the Holidays

(WFIE) - My name is Jeremy Evans, and I'm the new executive director of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ohio Valley.

Our Ronald McDonald House serves the families of seriously ill children from around the Tri-State by providing a place for parents and family members to stay while their child is being treated.

Our annual Lights of Love Campaign has officially begun.

I'm asking you to visit your local McDonalds and be one of our Lights of Love this holiday season?

Through our House we provide shelter through ten comfortable guest rooms.

We provide food through our community pantry and our daily meal program.

We provide families a restful night's sleep and freedom from many of the worries of everyday life, so that they can do what they do best - care for their children.

Would you please consider visiting your local McDonalds and purchasing a Christmas light for $1, $3, or $5 for our charity?

By making your gift, you help us to serve over a thousand children, parents and extended family members from around the Tri-State every year.

Every little bit helps - there's strength in numbers.

Please join with us to help provide this life-changing charity for our families.

Thanks, and Happy Holidays!
