Nashville RMHC’s 24th Annual “Calls for Kids” Telecast

This Saturday, April 5, 2014 from 7pm to 10pm Nashville’s News 2 WKRN-TV will once again air the Calls For Kids Telecast to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville with WKRN talent serving as hosts.

Screen Shot 2014-04-01 at 9.54.11 PMThe Calls for Kids Telecast is RMH’s best and biggest opportunity to highlight their mission, the families who utilize their programs, and the companies, individuals and organizations who fund their programs each year. During the three-hour live event, production is divided among the phone bank where volunteers, prominent community leaders and local celebrities field phone calls from donors, live and taped interviews with families, live and taped interviews with donors, and video segments that give viewers a closer look at our House and Family Room.

The Nashville Alpha Delta Pi Alumnae Association is a community sponsor again this year, matching all donations (up to $2000) during a 2 minute window of the broadcast. Our time slot is anticipated to be between 8:15pm and 8:30pm (but this is a live event so that may change). Thanks to Sister Sarah for representing us on camera!!

Are you busy Saturday night?

A Thank You from RMH

February 20, 2014

Alpha Delta Pi Nashville Alumnae


Dear Friends,

On behalf of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville, we want to thank you for bringing together such a great group of volunteers and providing supplies to help families staying at the Ronald McDonald House.  We appreciate your longtime support and your dedication to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville.

The 32-bedroom Nashville Ronald McDonald House is a “home away from home” for families with a critically ill child who is receiving treatment at a Nashville area hospital. Coping with a seriously ill child can be one of the most difficult and painful experiences a family may ever face.  For families having to travel long distances to hospitals for their child’s medical treatment, the strain is even more severe.  The Ronald McDonald House offers a great alternative to these families who would otherwise pay a large amount for a motel…or perhaps sleep in a hospital waiting room.

We appreciate you spending your morning cleaning, organizing, and disinfecting the Ronald McDonald House.  Thank you for helping us to continue to provide shelter, emotional support, understanding, and a homelike environment to the many families we serve each year.

Sincerely,

Kirra Menees

Volunteer Coordinator
Nashville Ronald McDonald House

Last year our fundraising for the Nashville Ronald McDonald House was very sucessful.  We were able to donate several meals to the residents at the house, sponsor the Hustle for the House 5K and donate $2000 in the Spring Call for Kids Telethon.   We hope to raise even more money this year but we need everyone’s help.  You can make a big difference in our fundraising campaign by signing up for a garage sale shift on our online signup sheet and donating some items for the sale.  In fact, I bet you have neighbors and friends that need to clean out their closets too!  All donations in good, clean condition are accepted.

We have flyers available for how to get involved and for you to advertise the sale in your community.
