Teamwork extends well beyond normal business hours for Simonton Windows. On Saturday, March 28, associates and their family members came together to donate their time at the Ronald McDonald House of Central Ohio.
The team planned, shopped, prepared, and served dinner to more than 30 families staying at the Ronald McDonald House. Each of these families has a child that is receiving long-term care at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
Why do we support the Ronald McDonald House?
Many families travel far from home and spend several weeks or months to seeking treatment for their seriously ill or injured child – a long time to be away or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having mom and dad close by for love and support. Ronald McDonald House is that “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost.
The Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal, or where they will lay their head at night to rest. RMHC believes that when a child is hospitalized the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.
