Will you be our Valentine?

There is still time to stop into your local McDonald's to buy a $1 pink paper heart in support of RMH families!

We stopped into the Jonestown Road and University Blvd restaurants here in Winston-Salem this afternoon and were excited to see so many people sharing hearts with RMH families.

Thank you to everyone across North Carolina who has shared their hearts ith the five Houses in the Tar Heel State!

Saying Farewell and Welcoming New Faces

Today we wish a Happy Retirement to Anita Ogburn, Executive Director of the Ronald McDonald House of Winston-Salem. Over the past 14 years, Anita has left mark on the hearts of countless families, staff members, and friends of the Ronald McDonald House. We will always remember her leadership, dedication, and passion, and we are incredibly grateful for her legendary vision and persistence. We wish her well as she begins her retirement and enjoys time with her family and four (soon to be five) grandchildren.

We also are saying goodbye to Director of House Operations, Sarah Holthouser. For the past 11 years, Sarah has greeted families with a bright smile! We wish her all the best as she begins her new job with Salem Baking Company and thank her for her dedication to and love for the Ronald McDonald House.

We are excited to welcome Sharon Fulcher-Tatom as new Executive Director of the Ronald McDonald House. Sharon is a native of Southern Virginia and joins the Ronald McDonald House from the Masonic Children and Family Services of Texas. We are excited to have her aboard and welcome her to the RMH family!
