By Telissa Moore

As today is the day of the Ronald McDonald House Collection Drive, I want to encourage everyone to donate what they can to this wonderful charity event.

This drive has become an important event in my life since 2009, when my family found ourselves needing somewhere to rest while our newborn son, Brent. was in the NICU at Kosairs for 9 days.

Although, our stay was not as long as others, it was long enough to have a huge impact on my life!

The Ronald McDonald House provided us with the comfort of knowing we were just around the corner from our little guy, if he needed us at any hour.

So, on behalf of Brent and my family, along with all the other families from Adair and surrounding counties whom the RMH has helped throughout the years, I am asking everyone who can and would to please make a contribution to this wonderful cause and remember, it's not how much you give it''s the thought that counts!

Thanks in advance for your contributions and May God Bless those that can give and those that cannot. Telissa Moore and Family. -TELISSA MOORE
