GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – 9OYS is again working with the Ronald McDonald house of Greenville, offering help in its work supporting children receiving care at local hospitals and their families.
WNCT announced a $5,000 donation to the Ronald McDonald house so its workers and volunteers can continue helping families. Station General Manager Amy Doane presented the Nexstar Media charitable foundation donation on Friday to the house’s executive director.
The money will help the Ronald McDonald house’s operations at a time when the coronavirus pandemic is adding a greater strain on those efforts.
“To be able to provide a warm bed, hot shower, a place for our families to do laundry, a hot meal for them,” said Meghan Woolard, executive director of the Greenville Ronald McDonald House. “Then we hope to be able to take care of those financial needs so they can fully hundred percent focus on the healing of their child.”
Woolard also wants people to know the Ronald McDonald House is still open and supporting families who need it.
