"Our association with Ronald McDonald House Charities all started shortly after we welcomed our son, Rhett, into the world. We will never forget the first time we entered Ronald McDonald House. We were feeling exhausted, missing our daughter who was hours away, and wanting nothing more than to return home with our new baby.
We were quickly welcomed with loving arms by the staff. We were shown around the House and helped settle into what would be our abode until we could take Rhett home. The love, kindness, and support we felt will always hold a special place in our hearts.
The new House is a testament to the need that exists for families like us. The community's overwhelming support also drives the growth and development of RMHC Manitoba for families in need.
It is a great honour and privilege to be chosen as this year’s advocate family for RMHC Manitoba. Words cannot completely express our gratitude for the ongoing support, friendships, and blessings we have received from the organization and all those associated with it. We thank you!” — The Delaurier family
