Fast forward 14 years. Last November my grandson ended up in a Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit at a large hospital an hour away. After learning that he would be there for awhile, I immediately inquired to see if there was a Ronald McDonald House on the campus. Much to my delight, there was. Maybe overstepping the bounds a little, I reserved a room for my daughter and her family. (I'm not usually that presumptuous but I knew what a blessing it would be for them.) Below are some photos from the Ronald McDonald house they stayed at.
So if you are looking for a way to bless someone who is really in need, I recommend throwing those extra coins into the box outside the drive through window, collecting as many cartridges as you can and dropping them in the drop box, or hey, better yet, send them a check, volunteer to cook a meal or man the front desk, donate supplies or give some time for a much needed project.
