This upcoming Wednesday, December 7, the Ronald McDonald House is hosting a Light the House event which allows people to drop by the House and enjoy some holiday treats with staff, friends, family and volunteers. I would definitely encourage anybody who is curious about the House to drop in between 12:00pm and 8:00pm.

The House has such a positive and welcoming environment and it is such a great place to start getting into the holiday spirit. All the families at the House are incredibly friendly and welcoming so you will have the opportunity to meet many new people. It is also very interesting to see the layout of the House since it is home to many families with various different needs. If you find yourself curious at all about what the House has to offer, or you know someone staying at the House, feel free to join the fun and you can have a tour through the House. You will be able too experience first hand the special places around the House like the theatre, fitness room and the Magic Room! The House gets very festive around the holidays and loves to go all out with decorations, gifts and baking galore.

If you would like to take part in the holiday fun at the Ronald McDonald House, please RSVP here!
