On Friday, August 1st, a group from the JKJ family went down to the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House to prepare dinner for 100 people.
Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House Mission:
The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House supports families of seriously ill children by creating a community of comfort and hope.
Our programs include two Ronald McDonald Houses, two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, a Hospitality Kiosk at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, and a Ronald McDonald Camp.
Over 90% of our funding comes from individuals and corporate donors, and the remaining 10% is provided by Ronald McDonald House Charities. While it costs the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House nearly $90 a night per family to provide housing and supportive services, families are only asked to contribute $15 per night. No one is ever turned away due to inability to pay.
At JKJ, we are always looking for opportunities to make a difference in our surrounding communities.
