“RMHC provides comfort and support to children and their families when they need it most,” said Sheila Musolino, president and CEO, RMHC. “We are grateful to our partners at Thirty-One Gifts for their contribution to these services as families brave such difficult situations.”
Since 2013, Thirty-One Gifts has been a valued and dedicated partner to RMHC. Through their generosity, over 11,000 additional nights have been provided to families staying at Ronald McDonald Houses. To date, Thirty-One Gifts has also provided 600,000 RMHC branded bags as a welcome gift to families upon their arrival to a Ronald McDonald House in the U.S. and Canada.
“RMHC was there for my husband and me when our son experienced complications shortly after birth,” said Jamie Hansen, independent sales consultant, Thirty-One Gifts. “It meant so much to be able to stay close to him while he was in the hospital many miles away from our home and it means even more to be able to give back to this organization.”
