Molino Homemakers Donate To Ronald McDonald House

May 31, 2011

The Molino Homemakers recently took a tour of the Ronald McDonald House in Pensacola and presented them with 50 handmade tote bags.

A tour of the new facility on Bayou Boulevard, which opened in August 2010, was given by Stephanie Cornell.

A short film was shown as an overview of the service Ronald McDonald house offers to families who need a place to stay while a family member is in the hospital.

Cornell said there were a few requirements to be able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House. The two main requirements are a child age 0-21 in the hospital for treatment and the family must live at least 10 miles away from the hospital.

After the film Cornell took the Homemakers on a tour of the many different rooms from check-in to the family room, kitchen, laundry, bedrooms and playground. There are 26 bedrooms in the new facility — a home away from home for families in need.

The Ronald McDonald house operates on donations which are greatly appreciated. For a list of items needed or to learn more about the Ronald McDonald House visit or call (850) 477-2273.

At the close of the tour the Homemakers presented Cornell with 50 homemade tote bags for families that use the facility. The ladies enjoyed lunch and fellowship at Picadilly Deli.

The next Molino Homemaker meeting will be Wednesday, June 1 at 10 a.m. at Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Molino. Visitors are welcome; dues are $5 per year.

    Now there is a nice story. So refreshing after so much bad news over the holiday.
    good for people like these homemakers for seeing a need and filling it….. The Ronald Mc Donald house needs so much help. One of the main things they need is new baby clothes to take the recovering babies home in, and they do keep lists to give people with all the things they could use. This is such a worth while project.

    They also could use meals, either donated, or cooked on site. With people coming
    and going all the time to the hospital to see their babies, they need to be able
    to grab quick sustenance.

    Let’s also don’t forget that if you save your pop tabs, and bag them up and
    take them over they can redeem them for discounts on their power bills at
    the RMD House.

    Stop by, you won’t be sorry.
