As the chair of Leadership Sandy Springs’ 2008 Volunteer For A Better Sandy Springs and the president-elect of the Sandy Spring’s Kiwanis, I have been working to have the Ronald McDonald House in Sandy Springs and the Sandy Springs Kiwanis begin a future relationship.  Hopefully, the Kiwanis will make a positive impact on the Ronald McDonald House and vice-versa.

The Ronald McDonald House, located at 5420 Peachtree Dunwoody Road, is a fantastic organization that the community can be proud.  The home is a place for families to stay while their children receive specialized medical care which can last many months.  For these folks, this special place is a godsend.  Just walking through the home reminds us that this place is a truly special home.  The house manager, Cari Olson, does a fantastic job with the facility.  The house relies primarily on donations from national and local businesses, and individuals. Many local volunteers serve the facility as well.

I would highly recommend my readers to visit the Ronald McDonald House website for more information (www.armh.com) and find a way to help.  Also, if you ware interested in getting involved with serving the community, the Kiwanis is a great place to start.  For more information about the Sandy Springs Kiwanis, please contact me or visit our website at www.kcss-ripples.org.  We meet the first and third Thursdays of each month at Aldo’s between 11:45AM to 1:00 PM.  Join us as my guest to start your journey into community service.
