On Thursday, August 10th, the Pasadena Ronald McDonald House was a part of #NestléCares Day of Service. Nestlé Employees came to the House and cooked a Meals of Love and donated gift bags to each family. They grilled burgers and hot dogs for a delicious lunch that our families all enjoyed. After lunch, the families were surprised with individual bags filled with much needed toiletry items, washcloths, snacks, coffee, and “Nestlé Swag”, consisting of t-shirts, sweatshirts, and of course, candy. A plethora of board games, puzzles, art supplies, and more were also donated to the House, making the children currently staying here feel as if it was Christmas morning. Our families loved the company of the Nestlé volunteers, and are so grateful for everything they do for us!

This year the Pasadena Ronald McDonald House will be honoring Nestlé USA at their 13th Annual Gala on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at the Langham Huntington Hotel themed “An Enchanted Evening”. The Gala will benefit the families who must travel far distances to access the medical care they need for their sick or injured child. Our Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest. We believe that when a child is hospitalized the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.

The Pasadena Ronald McDonald House is a program of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California. For more information, visit www.rmhcsc.org/Pasadena.
