Main Street Volunteers at Ronald McDonald Holcombe House
In March 2023, Main Street volunteered at the Holcombe House(rmhhouston.org/Holcombe-house/), one of four Ronald McDonald Homes in Houston. For more than 30 years, Ronald McDonald House Houston (“RMHH”) (rmhhouston.org) has been helping families, with seriously ill children, allow parents who are far from home to stay close to their hospitalized child and benefit from the comforts of home without incurring hotel and food costs during these difficult times. By providing a “home away from home” while their child receives the treatment they need, the Holcombe House is a home for the for families with seriously ill children who are being treated at a Texas Medical Center.
Main Street supported RMHH by participating in the JoyFULL Eats program. Through JoyFULL Eats, RMHH helps mitigate the challenges caregivers face when trying to find quick and healthy food options while their child is receiving care. Our team catered dinner to the families, residents, and staff of the Holcombe House. The event was supported by 7 Main Street employees who utilized the Main Street Volunteer Time Off (VTO) Program. The volunteers served the food to over 50 families which included preparation and clean-up for the meal. Main Street also made a donation of $5,000 which covered the cost for 3 additional lunches and dinners at each of the other three RMHH locations.
