The holidays are usually the happiest time of the year for so many of us; it is a time of year to celebrate, reflect and count our many blessings. However, not all families are able to be home for the holidays. The Ronald McDonald House was here for families who spent their holidays in the hospital this year.

This year we kicked off the holidays with our annual Family Christmas Party hosted by Dale Call and his family. We were able to provide gifts to every sibling staying at RMHC this year thanks to all of the toys that were brought in from our “Fill the Boat Drive” that took place in Modesto, California on December 8th. Our families were able to enjoy a delicious dinner, open gifts and take pictures with Santa Claus. We could not have done this without the support from the Call Family, Boy Scout Troop 33, Enterprise Holdings Team and our amazing volunteers.

We have been so fortunate to have received the amount of support we did during this holiday season. We have been the beneficiary of many drives this year. We would like to thank the following: Tom Hoisington, Mike Rafatti, Fasi Estate Winery, Bobby Salazar’s in Clovis, Thirty-One Gifts, United Hands Group, the Delph Family, RLMK, Inc., Michelle McGaughy, B-K Lighting, Steven Castaneda, EZ Fit Meals, Cargill, the Call Family, Ampersand Ice Cream, Carmax, University of Phoenix, Oh La La, Better Digs Organic Farm, Martin Brower, Bertha and Miguel Rivero, Monique Jacques, Valley Children’s Healthcare IT and Clinical Informatics, Miss Peru Grand, Camila Escribens, Clovis West High School women’s JV Basketball Team, and National University- Fresno scholars.

From our families to yours – Thank You for supporting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Central Valley this holiday season.
