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 ( 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  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.
