Military families joined together to give back at the annual Lincoln Military Housing, Crafting for a Cause event. Residents, living at a Lincoln Military Housing community throughout the Hampton Roads area, were invited to join Lincoln Military Housing team members for an evening of giving back by creating blankets that would be donated to the children and families living at the Ronald McDonald House in Norfolk, Virginia. A Ronald McDonald House provides a place for families to call home so they can stay close to their hospitalized child at little to no cost. When a child is hospitalized the love and support of family are as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.
Families were also encouraged to collect and bring soda can tabs which will be used by the Ronald McDonald House Charities to raise money through the recycling of aluminum.
“Ronald McDonald House could not provide this tremendous service without the very generous support of our military community! Many thanks for caring about the children and families we serve," said the Ronald McDonald Global Organization.
