Holbrook & Manter believes in giving back to the community. We encourage our team members to support causes that are near and dear to them. Nationwide Children’s Hospital continues to be a place that our firm supports in many ways and recently our team extended the efforts to just across the street at the Ronald McDonald House. Many of our team members hold this cause near and dear to their heart… some have stayed at a Ronald McDonald House before, others know someone who has. All of us believe in their mission.
Here is how RMHC explains who they are and what they do on their website:
For more than three decades, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio (RMHC) has been keeping families close at the Columbus Ronald McDonald House. From its beginnings as a grassroots movement established by a partnership between volunteers and local McDonald’s Owner/Operators, the charity has served thousands of families in their deepest times of need.
The reality of having a child sick and in the hospital can be incredibly overwhelming to parents and siblings. What the Ronald McDonald House is able to provide these families is a bit of stability in the midst of unthinkable circumstances. When a child is hospitalized, the comfort of having family nearby is beyond measure. It is this heartfelt purpose that both drives and defines RMHC of Central Ohio.
The staff at the RMHC could not have been more welcoming and gracious as some of our team members arrived to prepare a meal for those utilizing their amazing services. We were greeted by Chef Blair, who was wonderful to work with and passionate about the food she prepares for those at RMHC. On the menu was a pasta bar. We rolled up our sleeves and prepared all that was needed for a healthy meal…. from chicken to pasta… from veggies to fruit. All the major food groups covered and all of it was prepared with love.
Once the meal was ready to be served, our team members greeted some of the families at RMHC and helped them make their food selections. It was our pleasure to meet those staying at RMHC. Our evening on-site ended with a tour of the beautiful facility that so many call home while they must be away from home.
Thank you to RMHC for having us. We plan to return often to continue to fill more bellies, and our souls. Enjoy these snapshots from our experience. To learn more about RMHC, please visit their website: http://rmhc-centralohio.org/
