Ronald McDonald House receives donations

Updated:
JOPLIN, MISSOURI -

The "House that Love Built" gets a little extra love at Christmas time.  Members of the Freeman Health Auxiliary brought toys donated by members during their annual Christmas dinner.

Besides toys, other gifts for family members at the Ronald McDonald House were also included.

The auxiliary president says families spend so much time at the hospital with sick babies, they do not always have time to shop for other children and this way, they can get gifts here.

"Just very, very hard, that's the main thing on their mind right now, here to comfortable home eases a lot of the stress going through right now," says Jewett Cross the Freeman Auxiliary President.

The auxiliary also gives financial donations to the Ronald McDonald House during the year.
