Ray White New Zealand are proud to announce their continued support of the Ronald McDonald House Street Appeal. On Friday the 5th of June, 75 Ray White offices around New Zealand – from Kaitaia to Invercargill – will be out on the streets collecting to support the initiative.
Ronald McDonald Houses provide a home away from home for families from all over New Zealand whose children require specialist medical treatment in another city. During an extremely difficult time, the houses allow families to stay together offering not only accommodation but a supportive environment for the whole family while the child receives care in hospital.
Having a critically ill child in hospital is hard enough on its own, but being far from home makes it that much harder. RMH operate on the simple premise that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the well-being of their child – not how they can afford to stay near their child, where the next meal will come from, and where to lay their head to rest at night. The families tell us that being able to be close to the hospital, and having the practicalities of life taken care of at RMH is priceless.
Since 2007 Ray White New Zealand Offices have been involved by partnering with RMH to help keep families together, and have been active participants in the Street Appeal since its start in 2013.
