We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

In This Issue: Serve Daily – April 2020

Remember to use be kind to change the world for the better. Learn about many people doing great things to serve their neighbors as we stand together while staying apart.

r By Ryan Berger

My name is Ryan Berger and I am 15 years old. I started the idea of my Eagle Scout Project almost three years ago and have just been recommended through an Eagle Board of Review to advance to the rank of Eagle Scout.

So, what was my project? Well, due to health circumstances from when I was born, up until recently my parents have had to stay at the Ronald McDonald House a couple of times. If you don’t know what that is, it is a house where parents and family of children’s hospital patients can stay for a small $15 a night. Many meals are provided for them, and the worries of housing are taken from off their backs.

I decided from listening to the stories of staying at the house from my parents that the Ronald McDonald House needed some communication available. To do this, I set out to buy a set of Chromebooks for the house. These Chromebooks are lightweight, reasonably priced, reasonably powerful and allow for easy communication. In the beginning, I set my goal for five to 10 Chromebooks since each cost around $200, but I was surprised at what happened. Through fundraising and material donation, I was able to raise over $5,000, buying 30 Chromebooks.

With the leftover money that we got from a price match deal through the credit card and retail companies, I decided that instead of putting that money into another Chromebook that there was a better option. So I organized a group of friends and set up a budget to sponsor a meal at the Ronald McDonald House. Even after that, we ended up with some extra money, so we were able to buy some toys and gifts for the residents there. I would like to thank the community for all of the support that was given to allow me to be so generous to the Ronald McDonald House.
