Volunteer Spotlight - Denelle

The following is a thank you note we received from a volunteer who came to us in June 2010 after being laid off from her job. She volunteered in the front office every Tuesday, and quickly became one of our most reliable and helpful volunteers. We're happy to report that she accepted a new job last month, but we're also sad to know that she won't be in the front office every Tuesday. On behalf of the RMHC families and staff, thank you Denelle for your many months of service and for making Tuesdays so enjoyable! We're really going to miss you!


~ Your friend, Denelle

To the staff at RMHC: I know that spending time at Ronald McDonald House is supposed to benefit the children and families who stay there, but being able to contribute to that has helped ME in so many ways too. From the first day I started, you have all been so friendly and welcoming and I have loved every minute I have spent working with you. Thank you so much for helping me feel that my efforts meant something and were appreciated. If my few hours each week have given you even a fraction of what I have taken away each time, then I think we are even!

We’re always open to new volunteer ideas and projects!
