My troop is finishing up their Brownie Quest Journey. They decided to make their community aware of the on going needs of the Ronald McDonald House as in for their Take Action Project.
Our Brownie’s reached out to the their family, friends and community to collect items for the Ronald McDonald House while raising awareness at the same time.
I wasn’t able to get a picture of all the donations but they did fantastic! We delivered our items and took a tour of the house. The house is walking distance to CHOC hospital in Orange, CA. It provides a warm and comfortable place to stay while their children are receiving care at the hospital.
Through donations, the house provides everything from food and lodging to clothing and toiletries. It has a total of twenty rooms and serves up to eighty people. It has a large living area, dinning area, office complete with computers and printers, toy/play room, a relaxation room and beautiful indoor and outdoor sitting areas.
The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal but volunteers provide and cook meals in the beautifully equipped kitchen at dinner time and breakfast on the weekends.
After our tour, our lovely little Brownie’s helped out yet again by cleaning up all of the dinning tables, chairs and high chairs in the dinning room.
I’m very proud of my Brownies and all their efforts for bringing awareness to such a worthy cause.
