North Avondale Neighborly Love Event: February 2021

Baskets for Ronald McDonald House Residents

Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love of community and how that love brings people together. NANA has partnered with The Ronald McDonald House to share our hearts in the form of Valentine’s Day Baskets for the 40 families who are currently residing at the home. These families come from all over the country to seek treatment for their children. It is often a stressful time filled with worry, but our community has an opportunity to lift their spirits and bring them hope this Valentine’s Day!

We need 40 Baskets but are able to take more if we get additional interest.

Basket Instructions:

  • All candy or treats will need to be unopened and/or wrapped in a sealed container.
  • We encourage kids to take part in the activity by making handmade Valentine cards to write words of encouragement.
  • Please wrap basket in cellophane in order to keep items intact during transport.
  • No Monetary Items Allowed
  • For Ideas: https://www.target.com/s?searchTerm=valentine%27s+sensible+solutions This page has everything from small packages of veggie straws, gluten-free cheese puffs, to mini stuffed animals, to candy. Since sugar is not always the best for those fighting chronic illnesses maybe including sugar-free treats along with some sweets, little favors or decorations, etc. would be welcome

If you or your family is interested in making a Valentine’s Day Basket, please email Morgan and include your:

  • name
  • address
  • contact phone#
  • indicate if you prefer text over email
  • how many baskets you will make
