October

The Community Outreach Committee’s October mission is to finalize the collection of spare change from RWOF members for the Coins for Good jar. We will deliver the aggregate to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida after the September membership meeting.

Since opening in 1984, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida has served as a source of respite and resources for families who travel to Pensacola to receive critical medical treatment for their children.

Small change makes a big difference…

A dime here. A quarter there. It might not seem like much. But when many folks give, the amount those coins help children and families is truly amazing.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida’s philosophy is simple: nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child—not where they can afford to stay, get their next meal, or where they will lay their head at night to rest. When you donate, you are helping continue their mission of keeping families close. 100% of your donations go directly to the House and helping families face the most difficult time of their lives.

As always, participation in RWOF’s Community Outreach Committee program is NOT MANDATORY—only do what makes you comfortable and THANK YOU in advance for your support.
