Capitol Federal employees opened their hearts and wallets to raise $6,335.94 for Topeka's Ronald McDonald House through a month-long series of fundraisers, which was matched by the Capitol Federal Foundation for a total award of $12,671.88! We are beyond thankful for this incredibly generous donation, which will support more than 480 nights of family stays.
The Girl Scouts from Troop #01972 donated a table full of household and pantry supplies in support of our families! They also baked cookies for our upcoming Cookie Hop & Spring Bake Sale and decorated the House for spring. What incredible young women!
The first Sporting Clays for a Cause fundraiser for Topeka's Ronald McDonald House was held at Ravenwood Lodge on Saturday, April 6 with 100 shooters participating!  "This number far surpassed the original goal for this event, which was 60," said Keith Richards, RMHC Board member and event planning lead.  "We thank Mother Nature for the first warm, dry Saturday this spring, which brought more enthusiasts and RMHC supporters to Ravenwood."  In addition to the exciting competition, Sports Radio 1490 KTOP broadcast its Saturday morning show live from the event.  With 24 station sponsors and all items for the pulled pork lunch served to participants donated, more than $5,500 was raised after expenses. Plans are already underway for the second annual Sporting Clays for a Cause fundraiser to be held on April 18, 2020.
We are excited to receive more than 100 family snack packs from the students at Southwest Middle School in Lawrence! This is an annual outreach activity led by their teacher Perry Kennard and supported by Dobski & Associates McDonald's. These packaged snacks are a great support for our families!
Azura Credit Union selected our organization as the recipient of its annual "Skip a Payment" nonprofit fundraiser, which took place from November 2018 - January 2019.  All Azura loan holders were given the opportunity to skip making a monthly payment in lieu of donating $25, which was aggregated into an $18,350 donation to support family stays at Topeka's Ronald McDonald House!  Board President Patrick Smith and CEO/Executive Director Mindee Reece were thrilled to accept this donation from the Azura team!
Whether you volunteer one time or on an ongoing basis, you are part of the heartbeat of the Ronald McDonald House.  April 7-13, 2019 is National Volunteer Appreciation Week, and we certainly treasure our incredible volunteers for their tireless dedication to supporting our families and helping keep them close to their hospitalized children!   

The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeast Kansas keeps families close by providing a comfortable and conveniently located home for parents and loved ones who have children receiving medical care at area hospitals.
