On February 24th, employees from the BOLD Companies partnered with the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill to provide comfort and support to families with sick children. Over 20 volunteers spent the day moving 37 mattresses and box springs into the house to make the living spaces more comfortable for the families staying there.
Volunteering with the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill is an excellent way to support families during their child's medical treatment. Volunteers can help with housekeeping, serve meals to families, or assist with administrative tasks. There are also opportunities to provide specialized services, such as gardening, transportation, or entertainment for the families.
