GLRC Lends a Helping Hand to RMHC-Marshfield on Volunteer Day
By: Great Lakes Roofing Corporation
"As a new supporter of our House, GLRC demonstrated its commitment to local communities and the well-being of families and their children through the generous donation of a new roof," said Iilee Pederson, executive director of RMHC-Marshfield. "Furthermore, they have gone above and beyond by dedicating a day to volunteerism, helping us transform our House into a true home for families with hospitalized children."
GLRC volunteers completed various tasks, including fall yard maintenance, washing windows, disinfecting toys, and dusting and disinfecting railings and switches. A company-wide supplies drive helped restock the House's pantry. To cap it off, three large meals were cooked to support RMHC's "Home for Dinner" initiative.
"Our visit began with a tour to familiarize ourselves with the House's layout and the multifunctional spaces utilized by the community. This made our team feel right at home within the RMHC facility, enabling us to confidently and efficiently tackle our tasks. As we concluded our visit, our volunteers kept expressing their enthusiasm, eagerly inquiring about future opportunities to return and participate in similar activities,"
Pederson added, "Volunteers help make our Ronald McDonald House a home. They assist in relieving costs, allowing our charity to direct donations toward underwriting the costly expense of housing. This enables families to stay at Ronald McDonald House for free, regardless of the length of their stay. We are deeply grateful to GLRC for generously donating their time and talents to our House and families."
