"Ronald McDonald House Charities Toronto is so unique. There is truly nothing quite like it. It provides sick children what they need most: their families. As a proud supporter of RMHC Toronto since 1990, the need is so great that I feel obligated to do more to further their good work. I want to help provide stability, support, a welcoming environment and resources so families can focus on what is most important: their sick child."
