McDonald House Project 2020
The AT&T Illinois Pioneers created “Thinking of You” Care Bags for this COVID-19 project. They were donated to the families currently staying at the Ronald McDonald houses affiliated with Christ Children’s Hospital in Oak Lawn, Ann & Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago and University of Chicago Hospital in Hyde Park(Chicago).”
A total of 56 bags were donated to all parents with children in the hospitals along with restaurant gift cards to the following restaurants, Subway, Five Guys, McDonald’s, Chipotle Grill, and Panera Bread. The gift cards will be distributed between all 3 houses for their guest to use for meals as needed. Each bag also had a PPE Kit that was donated to us from Prince Hall Masons, coloring books, crayons, a word search puzzle book, a personalized “Thinking of You” card, an AT&T Pioneers branded pouch and Disney reading books. We hope each of the families will know that we are thinking about them and that we truly care.
