Things have been hard for non-profits during the pandemic, but one 11-year-old girl stepped up to make it a little easier for the Ronald McDonald House of Rochester with a $600 Donation!

The Ronald McDonald House doesn't spend much time noticing the amount of money donated because, to them, the most important thing is that people are giving from their heart, and so all donations are valuable for the hope they offer.

But I'll go ahead and say it...wow and well done! If a child can't be at home to heal, the next best thing is a home-away-from-home where families can gather, get to know each other, and support each other, too. The curative properties of this kind of support are monumental.
