Frank Ancona Honda Partners with Ronald McDonald House of Kansas City To Furnish 3rd Home for Hope Grows Here

Hope Grows Here





Frank Ancona Honda is excited to announce a partnership with the Ronald McDonald House Charity of Kansas City. The Olathe dealership made a $2500 donation earlier this month, launched a mobile giving campaign on RAZ Mobile for customers to donate and is promoting the Hope Grows Here campaign to furnish a third home in the city. The new house is scheduled to open January 2015. Donate now and help furnish the home for families.

The Ronald McDonald Houses are a “Home Away From Home” for thousands of families every year who must travel to the Kansas City area to receive medical treatment for a sick or injured child. There are two Ronald McDonald Houses that currently provide temporary lodging to as many as 60 families each night while their children undergo vital medical care.

Jason Heard, general manager of Frank Ancona Honda, said, “Helping the Ronald McDonald House raise money for a third house in Kansas City is extremely rewarding for our employees and the dealership. Giving back to a charity that provides a home away from home is the least we can do.”

Their donation will help to purchase the items needed to furnish the house. This week they hope to raise money for bedroom items.

These items cost around:

Bedspreads: $50
Lamps: $15
Towels: $10/towel
Dressers: $150

We will keep you posted each week as we furnish this new home! Thank you.
