Several months ago my girl scout juniors decided that for a take action project, they wanted to save pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald house. Then when cookie time came around the troop as a whole decided that we would sell gift of caring cookies for the Ronald McDonald house as well. Today we took the juniors to the Ronald McDonald house to deliver the pop tabs and 150 something boxes of cookies that were donated.
After getting his laundry started, Ronald McDonald himself took us on a tour of the place. It is basically a place for families who have sick hospitalized children, to stay so they don’t have to spend a fortune staying in a hotel while their child is in the hospital. So at the Ronald McDonald house there are hotel like bedrooms, only they don’t have tvs in them. They have a big movie room on the main floor with lots of bean bags and chairs so they can have movie nights. There is a workout room, and a laundry room. There is a big play room, and an outside play area for kids. I thought the play house was awesome:
We ended our tour in the kitchen, which was so awesome. I love all the counter space and the stove top. Groups volunteer to come in to help make meals for the families that are staying at the Ronald McDonald house, but they also have a couple of stoves and microwaves that the families can use to make their own food if they want something different than what is being made.
