What is the value of $16,400 to the Ronald McDonald House?
It could be fresh baked cookies and over 1,000 nights stay in a warm, secure home for families dealing with a parent’s worst nightmare.
Everyone at Haley Comfort Systems is excited to be involved in the community and show our commitment to the Ronald McDonald House. It is a great organization and we feel it’s very important in our community.
It is everyone’s hope that children live normal lives, sadly some do not. In 2016, 1,005 families were unable to stay with the Ronald McDonald House because there were no rooms available. We would like to help change that. No family should have to worry about where to stay in their time of need. Families are stronger when they are together.
Haley Comfort Systems and Bright Ideas have the opportunity to work with many families as they build and improve their homes by delivering heating, cooling, fireplace, and lighting options. As the community has grown, so has Haley Comfort and Bright Ideas, with expanding our showroom to serve our clients. We know the importance of having a warm place to call home.
When you think of community, what do you think of? The idea of community has been on our minds a lot lately, specifically the beauty of community and how people loving, supporting, and caring for one another is instrumental and irreplaceable in all of our journeys. What is so cool about community is that it comes in all different shapes and sizes! It has been said, that “where you invest your love, you invest your life.” But, what if we reverse that statement? Does it hold the same weight when we say, “where you invest your life, you invest your love.” We all have a community that we belong to. Regardless of what has led us to where we are today, and what has led us to call these places our homes, we must make a conscious effort to invest our love and lives into the communities that surround us.
