GOLO Makes $10k Donation To Support The Ronald McDonald House Of Delaware
GOLO LLC is proud to announce a $10,000 donation to the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware. The donation continues our commitment to supporting community-based health and wellness initiatives across the country.
“We’re honored to support the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware and its role in providing a supportive environment for families with seriously ill children,” says Jennifer Brooks, President, GOLO LLC. “Their commitment to the well-being of these families is inspirational, and we could not be happier to contribute to those efforts.”
Headquartered in Newark, Delaware, GOLO empowers individuals and communities by helping them take control of their health and wellness. The Ronald McDonald House of Delaware donation will support the organization’s mission, daily operations, and nutritious meals program.
“We are grateful to GOLO for their generous donation in support of our mission to serve families with seriously ill children by enabling access to medical care and provide a place that offers comfort, hope, and togetherness,” says Pamela W. Cornforth, President and CEO, Ronald McDonald House, Delaware. “At the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware, we believe that nothing is more important than families’ health, wellness, and safety. Many of our guest families travel far distances to receive medical treatment in Wilmington and spend weeks or months away from home. By providing a “home-away-from-home” during their medical crisis, we allow our families to experience all of the comforts of home including comfortable accommodations, nutritious meals, and a supportive community. Our families are then able to focus on what matters most – the well-being of their child.”
In addition to providing a place to stay, the House offers nurturing and supportive environments where families can be together and find comfort. Each family that checks into the House has a private guest room and access to amenities such as laundry facilities, a fitness center, four different playrooms, multiple kitchens, a movie theater, and an outdoor playground. A hot meal is served every evening.
The Ronald McDonald House also operates two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms® in Delaware, located in the Women and Children’s Center at Christiana Care’s Newark Campus and in Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware. Family Rooms provide a quiet, peaceful space where families can rest and unwind- located just steps away from neonatal and pediatric intensive care units.
