Ronald McDonald House Charities & La-Z-Boy!
For the last 30 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) have been providing a ‘home away from home’ for seriously ill children and their families when they require hospitalisation and can’t be treated in their own home town. The Houses provide a sense of comfort, familiarity and respite for families when they need it the most. La-Z-Boy are therefore proud to be partners of RMHC® and provide the majority of the furniture to the Houses across Australia, thus helping to create a comfortable and inviting space for families during this difficult time.
Australia’s 16 Ronald McDonald Houses have provided 95,000 families (over the last 30 years) with a home away from home. Whilst the RMHC® get a small amount of Government assistance, this is not enough to sustain day to day operations and therefore, they rely on the generous donations from key supporters and the community. A number of initiatives are therefore carried out each year to help fundraise for this worthy cause.
This year, Morgan Furniture (who manufacture, distribute and market La-Z-Boy furniture in Australia) not only provided furniture (especially to the Townsville and Canberra House openings) but helped by collecting on the ‘Feel the Love at Christmas’ collection, cooking ‘Meals from the Heart’ for families in the Westmead and South Australian houses and took part in various sponsorship days.
As a family owned business since 1944, the core essence of family is valued immensely at Morgan Furniture and everyone is proud to take part in supporting such an invaluable and essential charity as RMHC®.
