DENVER — Last week, the Colorado Farm Bureau State Women’s Leadership Committee purchased over $1000 in groceries for the Denver Ronald McDonald House. The CFB WLC and county Farm Bureau volunteers served a baked potato bar with potatoes donated from the San Luis Valley for the Ronald McDonald House guests. The money used to purchase groceries for the Ronald McDonald House is donated by CFB members and county Farm Bureaus throughout Colorado.
Ronald McDonald House is a home away from home for families of sick or injured children that are being treated in nearby hospitals. Families from rural Colorado and surrounding states are able to stay free or for a minimal cost. Most of the food items donated to the Ronald McDonald House pantries are ready to eat or quick to prepare, so families don’t have to spend money or time worrying about food during this stressful time.
