FORT MYERS, FLA. — Ronald McDonald House Charities was the benefactor of Home-Tech’s Charity of the Month program. Home-Tech donated $700 in the names of customers who purchased air conditioning units during the month of September.
Home-Tech is a long-time supporter of the Ronald McDonald House and this is the second time the charity has been Home-Tech’s Charity of the Month. Home-Tech also maintains the appliances and air conditioning units by donating an annual service agreement to the house. As a repeat sponsor of the Ronald McDonald House Storybook Ball, Home-Tech has supported the Ronald McDonald House with more than $40,000 in the past few years.
“The Charity of the month program is a wonderful way to get people involved in giving, and we extend our thanks not just to Home-Tech, but its customers for this donation as well” said Laura Ragain, executive director of the Ronald McDonald House.
The Ronald McDonald House serves as a “home-away-from-home” for families with children receiving treatment at The Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. With up to six families staying at the house at one time with constant turnover, the wear and tear on the kitchen and laundry appliances is extreme.
“This is a very busy place,” Ragain added, “and we certainly depend on our appliances and air conditioning units to remain in working order at all times. We have Home-Tech to thank for that and so much more!”
