Having Fun & Helping Kids        

I am very pleased to announce that Richard Russell and I have accepted to help and join the Shriners Transportation Team. Richard’s experience and dedication will be a great asset to the Shriners Hospitals for Children Transportation Team. The team is looking forward to working with all the Shriners, drivers and hospital personnel. Thanks to all the Shriners and Drivers for your help and support; the Shriners Hospital for Children appreciates your help.

Also, congratulations to Hospital & Clinic Coordinator Ed Barbee for volunteering to help the Shriners Hospital for Children at RGV Shrine Club in La Feria, Texas. Richard Russell and I are looking forward to working as a team.

Congratulations to Ms. Olivia Wright for accepting to help the Shriners Hospital for Children. She accepted to prepare meals for the Shriner’s patients during Clinic visits. Thank you for all your help.

Richard and I appreciate all the wisdom, knowledge and support Noble Dale McMillian has provided us during time when we needed help. Thanks for your help, Dale.

The Al Amin Shriners in the Rio Grande Valley and the Corpus Christi Area volunteer their own time to drive Shriners Hospital Vans from Port of Entry Hidalgo, Texas to Houston Shriners Hospital for Children. The Hospital trip consists of two drivers and two-day round trips. In the month of January and February 2018 are scheduled for 9 and 12 trips respectively, plus a mini-clinic of 45 patients scheduled on January 24 at RGV Shrine Club.              

Keeping Families Close When They Need It Most

Pop Tabs – Collecting aluminum pop tabs from soda cans is an easy and fun way to get your family or organization involved in supporting the mission. Ronald McDonald recycles the pop tabs and use the proceeds to support the daily operational costs. The aluminum pop tabs may be collected then delivered to the Holcombe House location at any time of the year. Once collected, Ronald McDonald House Houston receives a donation for the aluminum which supports the daily operations costs.

Ronald McDonald House Houston offers an affordable and comfortable place to stay where families have the chance to take their mind off their stress so they can be most helpful and supportive to their child and the other siblings. A nap, snack, hot meal, shower or even a chance to talk with another mom and dad is restorative and nurturing during an anxious time.
