Mr. Rooter® Plumbing of Central Oregon donated $100 worth of ?Wish List? items the business collected during its ?Rolls of Love? Drive for the Ronald McDonald House® in Bend.
Theses items included toilet paper, paper towels and other household items the charity needs. The plumbing company knows this well, because it is a corporate donor of Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®).
?This charity is near and dear to our hearts, and we want to thank everyone who gave to the ?Rolls of Love? Drive,? said Greg Muensterman of Mr. Rooter Plumbing. ?These are everyday items we take for granted, but they make such a difference for the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House.?
RMHC was established in memory of McDonald's® founder and franchise icon Ray Kroc in 1984. The cornerstone program, the Ronald McDonald House, provides a ?home-away-from-home? so families can stay close by while their ill child gets the health care they need.
For the third year, Mr. Rooter Plumbing and its affiliate companies ? Aire Serv, Glass Doctor, Mr. Appliance, Mr. Electric, Rainbow International and The Grounds Guys ? have made an annual national commitment of $100,000 to RMHC.
?We are very thankful to Mr. Rooter and its employees who have selected RMHC as their charity of choice,? said Jennifer Blanchard Smith, senior director of Communications and Special Programs, RMHC. ?Your generosity will certainly make a difference in the lives of children and families served through our Ronald McDonald Houses, a family-center program that provides stability and resources to families fighting the illness of a child.?
