Joann introduced our speaker Ann Woodford, Community Relations Manager for Ronald McDonald House. Their singular mission is to help improve the health and well-being of sick children.We do this by supporting those kids and their families with everything from housing to haircuts. We help them access care, reduce their financial burdens, provide psychosocial support to keep families together, and help coordinate with their health care teams to enhance clinical experiences and outcomes.

Whatever it takes, if we can do it, we will. Because even a challenging new normal doesn’t have to feel abnormal or insurmountable. Ann gave an excellent presentation.

Speaker for November 27th is Tiffany Awortwi, Supervisor of the Boys Town National Hotline, a 24X7 crisis counseling service.

Next Board Meeting is November 29th at 6:30 at Kip's Office.

Next meeting is November 27th at noon at Legends.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.
