This Valentine’s Day was extra special for the families of The Ronald McDonald House. The North Avondale Community came together to form the first annual “Neighborly Love” event where our families signed up to make Valentine’s Day care baskets for the Ronald McDonald residents. We were overwhelmed with the creativity, love and generosity that each and every one of you shared. NANA collected over 80 baskets which were delivered by Jay and Morgan Rottinghaus on February 10th.

The baskets brought tears to Mother’s eyes, put smiles on children’s faces and gave them signs of hope, encouragement and support during a difficult time. We want to thank the parents and children of North Avondale as well as the amazing staff at The Ronald McDonald house. NANA looks forward to continuing this new tradition in the years to come.
