THE TREE OF HOPE is our Lenten “Giving Tree” which is for the benefit of local Ronald McDonald House. Their mission is to provide a “home away from home” to families of seriously ill children while they are in St. Louis for medical treatment.
DID YOU KNOW that, as well as the houses we hear about, the Ronald McDonald House also serves local families through “Ronald McDonald Family Rooms” at 3 local pediatric hospitals? These offer the same comforts as the residential homes, including hot showers, laundry facilities, snacks, internet access and television. This gives family members a break from busy hospital corridors and noisy cafeterias.
Your support of our Lenten “Tree of Hope” means so much for these families! Please hang onto any purchases you make for them, and bring them to Mass to turn in the weekend of April 7-8. Please call Dianne Burpee at 645-8066 with any questions about this project.
