LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – The Ronald McDonald House is known as the home away from home for the families of sick children undergoing treatment in Lubbock hospitals. The house provides so much more than just shelter to those families, which is why a Christmas gift from Frank Brown Honda is so special. It's a brand new Honda Odyssey with wheels that can help families go where they need to go, even when their needs go beyond the hospital.
"We just couldn't do it without this van and many of the other various generous gifts that we're given and part of the reason is our families that stay here sometimes they don't have transportation to and from the hospital to visit their sick children," said Abbi Brickey, the development officer with the Ronald McDonald House.
Abbi says if you'd like to make Christmas brighter for the sisters and brothers living at the Ronald McDonald House while a sibling is undergoing treatment, you can drop a gift by the house, or call first to learn more about their needs. The Ronald McDonald House number is 744-8877.
