Raleigh, NC, March 20, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- With Spring just around the corner, Acquire is ready to kick start the new season with a new charitable opportunity and community involvement. The marketing firm, located in the North Hills area of Raleigh, is excited to announce that they are officially registered to partner with Ronald McDonald House (RMH). At the end of March, the Acquire team will be volunteering their time to cook for, serve and dine with current families at the Ronald McDonald House of Durham & Wake located in Raleigh.
Ronald McDonald House is known across the country for its efforts to provide care and necessary resources, such as housing, for families with seriously ill children. As the Acquire team researched charitable organizations in their local community, they discovered an RMH in Wake County. Acquire’s Directors presented the opportunity to their team and the vote was unanimous.
“We feel blessed to be involved with an incredible organization like Ronald McDonald House. It is a cause that is so simple to be excited about, and our team cannot wait to volunteer!”
-- Zack Schuch, National Director at Acquire
For over 39 years RMH in Durham has not only lessened the financial burden and other various stresses or worries that can arise from having a child with a serious illness, but the organization has also strengthened those who are caring for a sick child as they face the road ahead. RMH in Durham was the first RMH in the state of North Carolina as well as the first to be developed and supported solely by the surrounding community, which is a tradition that continues to this day.
In 2015 a new RMH opened at WakeMed, changing the name of the local program to, “Ronald McDonald House of Durham & Wake.”
“I personally know families with sick children who have been part of the Ronald McDonald House program, so I feel a strong connection to this organization and could not be happier to volunteer my time by serving the families here in the Durham and Wake County area. My hope is that our Acquire team can bring comfort to the families we are serving and put smiles on their faces even if it is only through preparing just one meal for them!”
-- Grant Gulledge, Sr. Director at Acquire
Since inception, Acquire’s Directors have been extremely vocal about their belief in giving back to the local community. Fortunately, their words have been put into action time and again through their participation in various philanthropic events. With the only support source for the local RMH program coming from the surrounding communities, the Acquire team felt it matched perfectly with the local involvement they were searching for. They look forward to contributing to Ronald McDonald House’s mission to “offer a comforting “home-away-from-home” and a community of support for seriously ill children and their families.”
