ASID Carolinas Announces New Partnership
Announces New Partnership with
Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte
Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte provides a safe, affordable and caring "home-away-from-home" for the families of children receiving treatment in Charlotte-area medical facilities. Families are stronger when they are together, and this is never more important than when a child is sick or injured. By offering families a haven less than one mile from our partner hospitals, we increase their ability to spend more time with their child, interact with their clinical care team and participate in critical medical decisions.
We are looking for volunteers all over the Carolinas to assist with this partnership. If you connect with any of the following needs and can possibly assist, please email us at email@example.com to be placed on a volunteer list.
Access to new furniture that could be donated to the house (as requested, needed)
Time to assist with house-related projects
A designer-sense of style when a challenge arises with current House furniture or staging needs
Looking to assist families in need through the donation of time or industry connections, as needed.
A special announcement will be made during the luncheon of our upcoming Spring Meeting. Register today byclicking here.
We hope to see everyone there to learn more about this partnership and how we are looking to bring design to life to families in need all over the Carolinas!
