The Ronald McDonald House is a source of tremendous comfort for families struggling with the challenge of having a sick child in the hospital. The House offers a comfortable place for a family to call home close to the hospital while their child is there. Certainly, nothing compares to being home with your child, but a place of respite—a place to take a moment, to get a homemade meal, and to find caring, friendly people can go a long way to easing a family’s stress.

You can be a part of this giving this comfort on Monday, May 20th. A group of us from Act Out Now will visit the Oak Lawn Ronald McDonald House to participate in their Cookies from the Heart program. We’ll gather together for a couple hours to bake some cookies and other treats for the families staying in the house. This is a child-friendly event. Join us if you can: RSVP Now.
