Ronald McDonald House Donation 2020
Most folks know the amazing support the Ronald McDonald House offers parents and families of ill children. The organization has been world changing for decades. During 2020, ALLIANCE Credit Union team members banded together to raise money each month towards making a charitable donation to the 501(c)(3) of their choice. The inaugural donation was made on Monday, November 23, 2020, and that chosen charitable organization - Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Southwest. Members contributed the amount of $1,871.31, which was presented on the grounds of the Lubbock Ronald McDonald House.
Located in Lubbock, the Ronald McDonald House continues to be the cornerstone program of Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Southwest. The House serves as a “home-away-from-home” for families of critically ill children who are receiving medical treatment in local hospitals. More than 400 families are served by the Ronald McDonald House each year. The provide families a place to sleep, eat, and relax, while their children receive medical treatment.
This inaugural campaign and donation will likely never be forgotten by those who contributed, and we simply cannot express our thanks enough for their generous support.
Special Note: This funding initiative occurred during the formation of the ALLIANCE Credit Union Foundation, and thus actually happened before the Foundation launched its role of service to the community. The raising of funds, however, was the nascent spirit of giving back that would become the Foundation's entire premise.
