Ronald McDonald House
Ronald McDonald House Charities Mission Statement:
The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities is to create, find, and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families. A world where all children have access to medical care and their families are supported and actively involved in their children's care. Keeping families together and near the care they need.
⬩WHAT DO WE DO TO SUPPORT THIS MISSION?⬩
As a chapter we hold fundraising events such as our "ADPi'S & Cheese Fries" which raised money that went to Ronald McDonald House in Sacramento.
Every year we host "Lion Cup" which is a week long fundraiser with different events each day. With the participation and support of other sororities and fraternities we are able fundraise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities.
On weekends, we have an "outdoor work party" at our local Ronald McDonald House in Sacramento and volunteer helping with various tasks such as weeding or cleaning up.
⬩WHY DO OUR SISTERS LOVE WORKING WITH
RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES ?⬩
"My favorite part of working with our local Ronald McDonald House is witnessing how volunteering brings people together. You walk in and you automatically feel like you are coming home, although in this home you aren't watching TV or relaxing, you are giving back to people in need. By doing so, you also gain a sense of fulfillment because you really do get to see where all your hard work and donations go to. I personally am not a morning person, but I never mind waking up early to go to RMH because I know that everything I do from weeding to cleaning to cooking is all going towards making someone else's day just a little bit better."
"I love working with the Ronald McDonald House because of the direct role that we can play in the lives of these children and their families. We are so grateful to have a Ronald McDonald House so close to Davis because of these special connections and interactions that are made at the house, through family dinners or outdoor work parties. While the COVID-19 pandemic did cancel our plans for our main philanthropy event in the spring, Lion Cup, we continue to strive to raise funds in other (virtual) ways!"
