Ronald McDonald House® keeps families close
Since 2013, Thirty-One has partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities® to help families stay together while going through some of the most difficult times in their lives. Few can imagine the stress, worry and financial struggles that can weigh on a family with a sick child. But by providing welcome bags, volunteering and donating funds, Thirty-One has been able to help RMHC® keep families with sick children close to each other and the medical care they need.
This summer, Thirty-One is hosting a National Serve Day across the U.S. and Canada. On July 31, Consultants will share their giving hearts by serving a meal to families at every Ronald McDonald House in both countries – that’s 155 houses in the U.S. and 15 in Canada! These meals will give families one less thing to worry about so they can focus on helping their children get well.
RMHC holds a special place in our hearts here at Thirty-One for all the ways that they’ve helped thousands of families – including members of our own Thirty-One family when they were going through a time of medical crisis.
“At birth, my son Nicholas required a rare surgery at a hospital eight hours from home,” says Jamie Hansen, a Consultant from Escanaba, MI. “The Ronald McDonald House was a blessing. Without it, we would have had much more stress and anxiety during an already stressful situation. I am thankful to be part of a company that supports the mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities.”
- Connect with your Consultant to host a party with a purpose to collect donations or assemble welcome bags. So far, Thirty-One has donated over 600,000 bags to houses so that families staying at a house receive a thoughtful, useful gift when they arrive.
- Contact a house near you for more information on volunteer opportunities. This summer is a great time to gather together to share your giving heart and remember what truly matters.
- Even if there isn’t a house near you, every time you Round Up!, you make a difference! We’ve provided 12,500 room nights to families across North America through company donations and our Round Up! program.
