Tim has been a strong advocate and board member of the Ronald McDonald Charities in San Diego for more than three decades. He recently hosted more than 20 business leaders for dinner at the 47-room facility in Kearny Mesa.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego provides a “home away from home” for families with children being treated for serious, often life-threatening conditions at local hospitals.
Thanks to an active volunteer program and generous community support, each year approximately:
1,300 families reside with us during their child’s hospitalization
11,000 additional people use our Family Care Center, coming for meals, computer access, and other essential resources
130,000 meals are served free of charge to family members with hospital identification
200 siblings of hospitalized children take part in education and enrichment programs, including the onsite School Away from School.
The impact is significant.
Hospitalized children: Children heal faster when families are near.
Families: Parents and healthy siblings can manage challenges better when residing together.
Pediatric Medicine: Hospitals require parents to be present for treatments. By housing parents, we help to make long-term and advanced treatments for children possible.
Residents of Southern California: We can all feel assured that we have a safety net to fall back on if our children become seriously ill.
Volunteers and Donors: Volunteers and donors deepen their engagement in civic life and contribute to a stronger San Diego by supporting our House.
Thanks to Tim for all the good work he does on behalf of this great organization!
