Around the House

Things have been busy!

Our Family Support Volunteers have been busy organizing all kinds of fun activities with families--from crafts and therapy dog visits to Monday night Bingo.

Recently, our lovely Stampin' Up! volunteers, Karen Culler and Susy Miller, helped families create these adorable pocket sized photo albums. Now, they can carry photos of sweet memories made with their children wherever they go!

Our kitchen crew has been busy as well, preparing many delicious meals for families over the last couple of weeks.

Thank you McDonald's, Mt. Tabor UMC, South Fork Church of Christ, Knollwood Ecclesia Class, Mike and Penni Bradshaw, Linda Raby, Cathie Cooper, Carol Nelson Ferrell, Aramark/Wake Forest Dining Services, WS Prime and all of our wonderful meal donors. You take such wonderful care of our families each and every night!

This next little tidbit is more of a "peek behind the scenes" but boy does it have to do with an important House operation. Last week, our old check machine (like the ones the tellers use at the bank) went on the fritz. Thankfully, our new friends at Digital Check Corp. jumped in and saved the day with a generous donation of not one, but TWO, digital check scanners! We are now processing gifts made by RMH supporters smoothly on our two (!!!) new machines. We are so grateful to Digital Lab Corp. for helping us with this important operational task.

What have you and your family been up to these days?
