Families band together in support of Ronald McDonald’s House

Erin and Chad Little of Saugeen Shores have partnered for another cause.  The Little family is local founder of the Little Foundation for Cystinosis, a rare medical condition that has affected their daughter Olivia.

The Littles have partnered with two other local families, the Carvers and Zieglers, to raise funds and items for Ronald McDonald House (RMH) on ‘McHAPPY Day’.

Together, the families purchased a child’s play House and, on May 8th at McDonalds in Port Elgin, they will be there to ‘Pack the House with items to take to the Ronald McDonald’s House.

The families will also be selling raffle tickets for the Play House with all proceeds going to the London RMH.  “All of our families have utilized some type of service under the RMHC in London,” says Erin Little, “and we want to give back.”

Below are the items that are needed for those who visit Ronald McDonald’s House:
