Civic Service Report

As covid restrictions ease non profits and other businesses are resuming fundraising activities.

Our Jess Plue takes a look at what the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Mid Pennsylvania has held so far and what’s to come in this week’s Civic Service Report.

Last Friday the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Mid Pennsylvania held its Bacon and Bourbon fest to kick off the return of their in person fundraisers. Even if the weather wasn’t
cooperating.

“The people that were there despite the weather, God bless them, they came out to a really rainy chilly weekend, but everybody I spoke to enjoyed it, had a good time, and were all about
the cause.

The cause he’s talking about is the ability for the Ronald McDonald Houses to give families a place to stay while their kids are being treated at the hospital so their focus can be on
the health of their kids not travel.

The Ronald McDonald House helps families in Pittsburgh while locally they’ve also started the program, rooms of Ronald for Kids being treated in Altoona or at Conemaugh in Johnstown.
With the same concept.

“We give you a voucher and you go stay at a hotel close to there.”

Up next is there 29th annual RMHC Mid Penn golf outing this Monday. The roster is already filled with 36 teams and 3 on the waiting list. Which Cassidy says further highlights the
desire to give back in our community.

“This community around here is very giving. They support my or any events you do around here immensely which is great.”

That was Jess Plue reporting.
