BUFFALO, NY -- The Ronald McDonald House of Buffalo has been helping families of sick children for thirty years. It's hard to believe , but they've helped around 18,000 families in that time. Families who stay there while their sick child is in the hospital.
Michelle Heller was in a terrible car accident ten years ago, while going to college here in the Buffalo area. She was taken to ECMC and her family flew in from New York City to be by her side. While in town, her family stayed at the Ronald McDonald House. They fell in love. Now, ten years later, Michelle continues to give back.
Sally Vincent is Executive Director at the house. She says they always need help. They need volunteers, they need people to come and help cook meals for the families. They also need everyday household items like laundry soap, bottled water, toilet paper and more. Everything you need for your home, they need for theirs.
If you would like to help, they have a wish list of items they need and they also have other ideas on how you can help. You can find them online at www.rmhcwny.org.
