'Tis the season of giving, when we pause and think about those less fortunate. This season, area McDonald’s restaurants are hosting a tree of giving drive for the Ronald McDonald House. So, this year consider helping support the children and families of the Ronald McDonald House in Omaha, Neb.
|77th & Dodge Giving Tree.|
This tree of giving starts with a paper ornament. The Christmas tree is covered with paper ornaments, each bearing a necessity needed for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House. Secret Santa's choose an ornament and return the unwrapped gift under the tree at participating McDonald's restaurants by Tuesday, Dec. 11.
The following items are needed by the Ronald McDonald House in Omaha to provide a home-away-from-home for families that must travel to receive medical treatment for their children. They are:
- Paper Towel Rolls
- Liquid Laundry Detergen
- Clorox/Disinfecting Wipes
- McDonald’s Gift Cards
- Tall Kitchen Trash Bags
- Gift cards to Bakers, CVS, Food 4 Less, HyVee, Target, Walgreens, Walmart
To participate, I visited the 77th and Dodge McDonald's location and picked several items from the giving tree. Each population-we™ staff member has committed to buy something for the drive. To donate a gift in your area or learn other ways to help, visit http://www.rmhcomaha.org.
