Mission Accomplished

When 4-year old Alvin was not eating enough, his parents, Adam and Eliza, knew immediate medical attention was necessary. In their case, this meant waiting one year to start the Feeding Program at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU 700 miles away from home. As Illinois residents, traveling for medical treatment would provide the best care for Alvin, but it would also place immense stress on his family to make suitable living arrangements. Fortunately, the Ronald McDonald House served as a home to Alvin and Eliza for 8 weeks through a hassle-free referral process.

Superheroes in Action
Throughout the month of May, BB&T Corporation encouraged community involvement among their employees through volunteer efforts. RMHC of Richmond was grateful to have the support from two different departments within the BB&T Corporation, Capital Markets and Commercial Banking, who united in sharing one remarkable goal this May: improving the health and well-being of children and families.


Community Spotlight

Oh, what a night! $32,000 raised, 300 attendees, and 40 volunteers. This year's Red Shoe BBQ was a great success. Thank you to our young professionals group, the Red Shoe Crew, for hosting a fabulous evening of boot scootin' fun! The evening would not have been possible without gracious support from our sponsors.  Special thanks to the incredible Jackson Ward Music for sharing their talent with us! We are so grateful for all who attended and showed your love for RMHC!

We hope you will join in on the rootin' tootin' good time next April to support RMHC!
