Care Packages Aid Ronald McDonald House Families

Staff members from Foresters, an international financial services provider, put together 140 special care packages on November 20 for children and families staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Fort Lauderdale. A “home-away-from-home,” Ronald McDonald House keeps families close together when their seriously-ill or injured children are hospitalized. These special care packages included items such as deodorant, toothpaste, a toothbrush, tissues and shampoo.

Ronald McDonald House will host its 11th annual Home for the Holidays on December 6th from 6 to 9 p.m. at Ronald McDonald House of Fort Lauderdale, 15 S.E. 15th St., Fort Lauderdale. The event, which is open to all, includes live entertainment, a Ronald McDonald live show, kids activities, wine tasting, silent auction, raffles, and culinary delights from South Florida restaurants.
