Nothnagle Donates to Ronald’s House!

During the months of November and December Nothnagle’s Corporate and branch offices collected items to donate to Ronald’s House located at 333 Westmoreland Drive. On December 22ndth representatives from Nothnagle will visit Ronald’s House and deliver food items, cash, gift cards and household supplies. The house provides a warm and peaceful “home-away-from-home” for families traveling to the Rochester area for their child’s medical care.

The first Ronald McDonald House opened in Philadelphia in 1974. Since then, many other communities followed suit recognizing this same need in their own community. Today, there are 300 Houses throughout the United States, and over 30 countries around the world. In 1996, the Rochester Ronald McDonald House merged with the local chapter of Ronald McDonald Children’s Charities. Today there is the House on Westmoreland which hosts up to 20 families at once and is run by over 300 volunteers and a small staff as well as the House within the Hospital located atop the new, state-of-the-art Pediatric Intensive care Unit at Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong. The House within the Hospital is for the families of critically ill or injured children receiving treatment at the hospital.
