Ronald McDonald House Charities launches new partnership
Ronald McDonald House Charities is joining forces with Ingenia Communities to support families with seriously ill children
Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is joining forces with Ingenia Communities to contribute funds, support services and experiences for families with seriously ill children.
The National Ronald McDonald House Family Room partnership will contribute funds, as well as offer a range of support and experiences, for families with seriously ill children across the 11 RMHCs across Australia.
As part of the program’s official launch on Thursday, Ingenia Communities CEO, Simon Owen, and fellow staff will cook up a heartfelt meal for families with children in care at the Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick. This will be part of the Ronald McDonald House Randwick make-a-meal program that RMHC runs at all of its Chapters.
“The make-a-meal program is an important part of our community here at RMH Randwick, families are going through a difficult time, having volunteers come in and cook them a heartfelt meal really adds a smile to their face – and the children love meeting new people too,” RMHC CEO, Simone Daher, said.
“Ronald McDonald House and Ingenia Communities is a great partnership- I know all the Chapters across Australia are looking forward to sharing with families the opportunities Ingenia Communities has gifted.”
Owen said the whole team was delighted to be working towards making a positive impact to the lives of so many Australian families experiencing difficult times.
“Our partnership with RMHC is an exciting opportunity for our team at Ingenia Communities to work every day to positively touch the lives of our residents and guests,” Owen said.
“We are excited to not only provide financial support but to also facilitate the engagement of our passionate team, who are keen to get involved with the work that Ronald McDonald House Charities Australia does.”
The partnership will also contribute a range of holiday experiences provided to families with seriously ill children through Ingenia Holiday parks.
