Teams of Belcan employees have signed up to prepare snacks for the families staying in the houses, as well as other volunteer duties. To date, an overwhelming number of employees have pledged their personal time to the cause, filling up numerous shifts at the houses.
“We are so excited to help the Ronald McDonald House with its important mission,” said Amanda McCaw and Kimberly Borkoski of Belcan Community Relations. “Belcan believes that although supporting charities financially is important, so is giving your time. We are fortunate to have great employees who are so willing to donate their valuable hours to a great cause.”
Belcan has partnered with the Ronald McDonald House Charities to help the organization offer all the comforts of home to every family with a hospitalized child. Belcan has sponsored a room in the Cincinnati house and provides ongoing financial support, but the company has also pledged to increase its volunteer participation this year.
“We could not ask for a better corporate partner. Belcan’s financial support has brought comfort to hundreds of families in their time of need,” said Jennifer Goodin, Executive Director of Cincinnati’s Ronald McDonald House. “We look forward to having Belcan’s employees volunteer at Ronald McDonald House, and we know that their compassion and generosity will truly make a difference in the lives of critically ill children and their families.”
