Volunteers Donate Christmas Gifts to Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Four States

Freeman Auxiliary volunteers have collected toys, books, mittens and other items to donate to children. Gifts, toiletries and other essential items were also gathered for parents who stay at Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Four States during the holidays.

Each year, Freeman Auxiliary members raise money through Freeman Gift Gallery, raffles and various events. In addition to Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Four States, Freeman Auxiliary supports programs such as Bill & Virginia Leffen Center for Autism, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®, the Chaplains Fund and Turnaround Ranch. Freeman Auxiliary also purchases wheelchairs and other needed hospital equipment.
