The Ronald McDonald House Provides A "Home Away From Home"...

Show Stripes 6by helping families stay close to their child.

Being in a hospital presents us with a feeling of anxiety and powerlessness. Just imagine how much scarier the feeling is for a child – especially when their parents are far away from them.

Wilkin & Guttenplan showed support by joining NJCPA’s “Month of Service” in May which involved the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). To help bring calm to both parent and child, RMHC created a “home away from home” program to help keep families together during these burden-filled times. Since 1974 a network of local RMHC chapters offer supportive environments where family members are able to stay together in a comfortable home-like setting during the course of their child’s treatment.

To help push community involvement, their Show Us Your Stripes initiative involves the purchase of red-and-white striped socks or shirts for $5 and $10 with the proceeds benefitting the RMHC. The generosity given to this program has enabled support to families for more than a quarter of a century.

Additionally as part of NJCPA’s “Month of Service”, W&G participated in the Caring Cooks Program with the Ronald McDonald House by sponsoring a Cinco De Mayo themed family dinner. W&G volunteers put on their chef-du-jour hats and whipped up a menu of tacos, corn and black bean salad, corn bread, fancy rice, cheesecake and more!
