It’s the day after the grand opening of the Ladish Co. Foundation Center, and while the rest of the building is buzzing with activity, our Family Room is quiet and still. After a week of heavy rain, sun is pouring through the windows, and I smile thinking about the families that will soon be able to enjoy this beautiful new space.
Toys, books and games fill the shelves of the play room – I can’t wait for a family to discover my favorite game – Code Names. The kitchen is stocked with snacks and drinks for families to enjoy, as well as all of the ingredients needed for our volunteers to bake chocolate chip cookies. The Creativity Room is filled with arts and crafts supplies and if you sit on the patio long enough, you’re likely to see a family of cranes walk by.
Soon, our volunteers will put on their red aprons and welcome families to the Family Room with the same warmth and hospitality they share every day at the Ronald McDonald House®. After a year of planning and preparation, everything feels like it’s coming together.
Thank you to everyone who helped turn the idea of our Family Room into reality. I look forward to sharing more once we are completely up and running. Stay tuned!
