Grateful For Ronald McDonald House Support

To The Editor:

The Pennsylvania Farm Bureau recently concluded its annual commemoration of the “Farmers Care Event,” which is coordinated with the “gathering” of food, household items and monetary donations for a very, very worthy cause.

Fulton County Farm Bureau’s item “drive” is delivered to the Ronald McDonald House in Hershey. That was done on February 11, along with other county farm bureaus that surround the Hershey Complex.

Fulton County was privileged to present $3,032.05 in monetary donations and other items necessary to the operation of the House to the Ronald McDonald House Charities Foundation.

So, a big thank-you to all who contributed a few pennies to several hundred dollars: churches, businesses and civic organizations, also to those who offered their businesses as drop-off sites, as well as those who gave counter space for the collection jars. You are great!

The Hershey Ronald McDonald House is a magnificant facility that offers a home away from home, when the need for caring staff and shelter is the greatest in the lives of so many.

Just a note: Most of the work that goes on at the RMH facility is done by a volunteer staff. They are so worthy of our appreciation as well.

Fulton County Farm Bureau is so grateful to so many in this county for your continued support of this very functional and much-needed facility.

Much appreciation goes to our county coordinators for taking on this task: Sue Fleming, Clayton Lynch and Donna Lynch.

Marlin Lynch,
President, FCFB
