We welcomed new volunteer Meal Makers to Topeka's Ronald McDonald House today. Jen & Shane along with their daughter Ash & son Daniel prepared a delicious meal of ham & cheese sliders, cream cheese corn, fruit salad and brownies. They've stayed at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City & Ronald McDonald House Charities New York Metro and wanted to pay it forward for other guest families. Jen said they know how nice it is to return from the hospital to find a warm, comforting meal. 💛

Please join us in welcoming Marlo Jackson to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeast Kansas Board of Directors. A longtime RMHC volunteer, she serves as Director of Planning for Helzberg Diamonds. Marlo lost her best friend to cancer 20 years ago, who had spent many a night at the Ronald McDonald House during her treatment. "This organization has always been near & dear to my heart," she commented. We are very excited to have Marlo in this new role as a volunteer leader!
