Ronald McDonald House Fort Worth Asks Community for Help Supporting Its Families – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
The Ronald McDonald House in Fort Worth seeks help from the community as the organization cares for and supports the needs of medically and mentally weak families.
A year into the pandemic began, the nonprofit has greater needs than ever, RMHFW said.
Ronald McDonald House officials said they anticipate a $ 100,000 budget impact because they cannot bring volunteers back to feed our families.
Volunteer food groups typically provide food and prepare and serve meals for the families looked after by Ronald McDonald House.
All volunteer programs are on hold and important special events are being canceled, putting a strain on the organization’s budget in light of the ongoing pandemic, RMHFW said.
According to RMHFW, the February winter storm caused thousands of dollars in repairs due to a burst sprinkler pipe.
RMHFW said the nonprofit was able to feed more than 1,200 families in 2020 thanks to the organization’s supporters. Now, in 2021, the organization needs support from the Fort Worth community.
The nonprofit celebrates 40 years of keeping families together during times of medical crisis, and this year’s support will ensure that no part of the program suffers from the ongoing effects of extraordinary circumstances, RMHFW said.
