Giving Thanks for Families in November

This November let’s take time to remember the families of children in the hospital with a HUGE Ronald McDonald House Fundraiser. The Ronald McDonald House keeps families close to the care and resources they need. Their mission, "We, in partnership with our community, provide a comfortable and caring home-away-from-home that supports keeping families together and reduces stress during a child’s serious illness."

Event 1
From now until our November general meeting let’s start collecting pop tabs.Why pop tabs? Saving pop tabs is easy and fun! It’s a small gesture, but collecting pop can tabs can make a big difference – in fact, since its founding, the Pop Tab program has raised more than $500,000! These funds have helped underwrite program costs at Twin Cities locations.

Event 2
From now until our November general meeting let’s start a collection of urgently needed items. The Ronald McDonald House has a list of most needed items. They are Paper towels, Food storage (larger sized), Sugar, vegetable oil, and olive oil. Bring any new unopened items to the September, October, and November meetings.

Event 3
Join together in decorating and making Breakfast Bags at our November General Meeting. If you would like bags to decorate before the meeting for yourself, children, grandchildren, and all other important children and adults in your life please let me know and I will get them to you. It would be amazing to have all of our bags complete before we start filling them in November. I will be asking the chapter for up to $100 to fill the breakfast bags at the September meeting.

Please take time to help with one or more of the planned events. There is something for everyone.
