By purchasing and wearing Ronald McDonald House of Dallas (RMHD) “Share the Love” t-shirts May 17, Glass Doctor of North Texas helped pay for approximately 30 nights of free stays for families with sick or injured children staying in area hospitals.
The Ronald McDonald House program provides a home-away-from-home, so families can stay close by their hospitalized child. RMHD suggests a contribution of $15 per night to offset the costs of lodging, meals, transportation and other services.
“The whole shop wore the shirts to help fund the house, as well as bring awareness to Ronald McDonald House of Dallas and their mission,” Glass Doctor of North Texas franchise owner Larry Patterson said. “RMHD is an amazing organization, and we’re proud to be able to support them in any way we can.”
In 2012, Patterson, the reigning Glass Doctor Franchisee of the Year, joined with nearly 90 other Glass Doctor franchisees to raise more than $13,000 for the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas at The Dwyer Group, Inc.® 2012 Reunion.
Glass Doctor and its sister companies in The Dwyer Group (Aire Serv LLC, The Grounds Guys LLC, Mr. Appliance LLC, Mr. Electric LLC, Mr. Rooter LLC and Rainbow International LLC) are national supporters of Ronald McDonald House Charities®. As part of their support, franchise owners continue to donate their services, labor, and supplies to Ronald McDonald Houses in their respective service areas.
