Ronald McDonald House in Saskatoon is vital to families with children age 18 years or younger who are hospitalised in Saskatoon. With the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital slated to open later this year, it’s importance will only increase. With a suggested payment of $10 per night and meals provided for families, it can alleviate a huge stress on families with a sick child.
Friday July 26, there will be a fundraising BBQ held on Main Street Carlyle, with all proceeds to benefit the House. The funds received that day will be used to feed the families staying at RMH Saskatoon on July 31, 2019. Any extras will be used to provide thermals to families to carry food or breastmilk to the hospital. The average number of people staying in Saskatoon this past week was 101, and families appreciate being able to return to the house for a hot, nutritious, home cooked meal each evening. Ronald McDonald House Charities and the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital are both recipients of donations from ThirtyOne Gives (the philanthropic arm of ThirtyOne Gifts), and as part of their National Serve Day, consultants across the US and Canada will be preparing, funding and serving a meal to the guests of Ronald McDonald House, with help from their individual communities and consultants themselves, through fundraising initiatives. If you find yourself on Main Street that day please enjoy a burger or hotdog and a drink and make a donation.
