At American Capital Group, we pride ourselves in not only serving our customers but our community. Giving wholeheartedly is one of our foundations and we make it a point to get involved throughout the year. One evening in May, we gave our time to the Ronald McDonald House of Orange County. ACG provided a delicious barbecue dinner with salad, corn, rosemary potatoes, Italian sausages, and BBQ chicken. At the Orange County location, up to 20 families can stay at the house; providing a warm meal for them helps after they’ve spent long days at the hospital.
We have chosen to give to the Ronald McDonald House of Orange County for the past few years because of their amazing service to the community. Since 1989, the RMHOC has acted as a home-away-from-home for families with children who are critically ill. Sometimes families need to travel quite a ways for the specific care their child needs. Before RMHC’s (Ronald McDonald House Charities) existence, families with critically ill children had to deal with the costly task of paying for a hotel near the hospital their child was at, sometimes for months at a time. The RMHC works to alleviate some of the stress by providing a relaxing and clean environment for families at little or no cost.
It was an honor to spend a night at our local chapter cooking food and meeting some of the families that are currently staying there. To learn more about this incredible organization and how you can get involved with your local chapter, click here.
