New Year, New Changes

by Dee Anders

We all fell in love with the special patient stars in the 2013 Nationwide Children’s Hospital holiday Matta-Flyer-2014commercial. All of those children wanted to be home for the holidays with their families. If you can’t be home for the holidays, the Columbus Ronald McDonald House is the next best place to be. The holidays are a magical time at the Ronald McDonald House, the outpouring of love and compassion is amazing. The House reminds you just how caring and good people are in this community.

Now, we look forward to an exciting 2014, a year of growth and change here at the Columbus Ronald McDonald House. We look forward to welcoming new volunteers, new staff members, new rooms, new homes, new families, and new friends. However, one thing that will not change is starting the year off with the Vote Matta Campaign! You can vote every day for the next 10 weeks. Coach Matta and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio are up for the challenge to defend their two-year reigning title, and we are hoping for a three-peat! So please take some time today to vote for Coach Matta and the Columbus Ronald McDonald House at Every vote matters, and helps keep families of seriously-ill children only footsteps away.
