Wythe County Community Hospital Presents Donation to Ronald McDonald House

December 6, 2018

Wythe County Community Hospital presented a donation to the Ronald McDonald House in Roanoke, Virginia in the amount of $5,200.  The donation included a corporate contribution in addition to funds that were raised by a 5K Color Run/Walk project headed by Kimberly Purvis, director of the Women’s Center at Wythe County Community Hospital.  

“The Ronald McDonald House seemed like the perfect fit for a fundraising project for our employees and our community members,” said Kim Purvis.  “We are thankful for Ronald McDonald House and the services they provide to the families with a hospitalized child.” 

“Having a child with a serious illness or a pre-term infant can be a very difficult time for parents,” said Joseph Wilkins, chief executive officer at Wythe County Community Hospital. “This donation is one way that we can give back to an organization that benefits the members of our community and whose mission is aligned with ours.”; 

Ronald McDonald House provides a home-like environment, support, and resources to keep families together during the hospitalization of their child.  Ronald McDonald House relies on strong partnerships to enable family-centered care. “Many of our families originate from rural hospital communities,” said Stephanie Carroll, director of special events and community development at Ronald McDonald House, Roanoke. “These are the families from Wythe, Bland and surrounding counties being supported by this generous donation. We are overjoyed to have Wythe County Community Hospital as a community partner.”
