Auburn Hills, MI – Last week, a team from Reliance One stopped into the Ronald McDonald House (RMHC) of Detroit to present a monetary donation on behalf of their employees. The donation was generated by various fund-raising activities and events throughout 2014. The RMHC provides a home away from home for families of pediatric patients. Annually, the house provides rooms for approximately 1,500 guests.
As we looked for local organizations to support, The Ronald McDonald of Detroit made perfect sense. Employees of Reliance One have experienced, firsthand, the impact the RMHC can have on a family during a time of need. “My five month old son was medevac’d for heart surgery, and my wife and I were overwhelmed by the support and care we received by the RHMC. They allowed us to totally concentrate on our son’s wellbeing and not worry about the travel or accommodations,” said Jim Paquette, Vice Chairman and Co-Founder of Reliance One.
While visiting the RMHC last week, we learned some exciting news about an upcoming move. Early in 2015, the RMHC will move from its original site at Children’s Hospital to its new home at 4727 St. Antoine, just one-half mile north, in the Hutzel Professional Building. Along with the move, the charity recently announced its first major campaign to raise $3 million over the next two years.
