Volunteer Spotlight: Hunter Rollins!
The Rollins family has been volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House for a year making meals and cookies for the families staying. The Rollins’ oldest son, Hunter, has taken a special interest in his service to RMHC of Richmond. As he describes, “I have become part of this family at the house with not only the staff, but with the families that walk in and out of the house.” In August, Hunter gathered items from his community to support our Happy Wheels program. Hunter expressed “I was very proud of all my supporters and donations I could share.” His efforts go such a long way in supporting the Happy Wheels program, where all of the items handed out on the cart are provided by the community.
Recently, while making a meal at the house, Hunter noticed a shortage of paper towels and other household supplies. From volunteering at the house in so many capacities, Hunter understands that with serving up to 9 families per night, the house goes through items like paper towels very quickly. Hunter was inspired to do another wish-list drive, this time for items in the house that help make families feel more comfortable during their stay. Hunter is in the process of collecting donations now and is hopeful that this drive will be just as successful as his Happy Wheels drive.
We are grateful that Hunter is a part of our RMHC family and has become a leader in engaging community support. Thank you Hunter and the entire Rollins family!
