Ronald McDonald House Thanks Community for Support in Charity Contest

Last Edited:

After coming up a little short the first time, the Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey was excited to announce that they are the winners of a national contest. 

Members of the organization unveiled the news via social media with a video saying: 

"Roses are red, violets are blue, we won $10,000 because of you!"

The staff along with the families currently staying at the house, posted the video to their Facebook page thanking the thousands of people who helped vote them into victory for January's KIND Challenge.

The Camden-based house will receive $10,000 for getting the most votes for their kind act for serving as a home away from home for families with sick children from all over the country getting medical care in the area. They plan on using the winnings to help with the costs of their transportation fund.
