Ronald McDonald House Charities®(RMHC®) of Johnson City is passionate about lending a hand, a meal and a warm bed to families in need. They strive to change the lives of the children, families and the community through the help of volunteers and local businesses.
When Mr. Appliance® of The Tri-cities, heard that they could help RMHC families feel more at home by cooking a meal, they decided to pitch in. Thanks to Mr. Applianceof The Tri-cities, the families of RMHC of Johnson City enjoyed a home cooked meal to make the stay away from home a bit more comfortable while at the Ronald McDonald House®.
Anthony Arroyo, owner of Mr. Applianceof The Tri-cities, makes it his goal to build relationships not only with his customers, but also with the community. Arroyo says that its opportunities like these where relationships are formed and lives are touched.
Arroyo believes that Mr. Applianceof The Tri-cities commitment to RMHC comes from Mr. Appliance’s code of values, where respect, integrity and customer satisfaction are the priorities.
“The first code of value is to treat others as we would like to be treated, and that value is the foundation of our Mr. Appliance partnership with RMHC,” said Arroyo. “Mr. Applianceof The Tri-cities considers it a privilege to partner with an organization like RMHC that gives so much to families in need.”
Mr. Applianceof The Tri-cities hopes to encourage other companies and organizations to join in warming the hearts of those in need. Any act of service can make a difference. Whether it’s fixing a dryer, replacing a sink or providing a meal, hearts will be touched.
“The Ronald McDonald House® program provides a ‘home-away-from-home’ for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost to families,” said Jennifer Smith, senior director, RMHC. “Our Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child- not where they can afford to stay or where they will get their next meal.”
