April 2014: Volunteering for the Ronald McDonald House at the Hanna Perkins Center

Thank you to the many families who volunteered for one of Caring Cubs’ favorite organizations – the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland!

The children painted their hands for a welcome poster for Ronald McDonald House, wrote notes of encouragement for the families staying at the house, decorated the fronts of blank thank you cards, and made festive door hangers for each guest room.  Each of these projects is focused on creating a welcoming and supportive atmosphere within the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland.

Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland is a home away from home for families with a hospitalized child. Ronald McDonald House offers a place to stay at little or no cost so families can access the best health care, regardless of their location.

The Hanna Perkins Center for Child Development has served children and families across Northeast Ohio since 1951 by promoting understanding of the inner emotional life of children. Its work is founded on the knowledge that a child’s behavior is a means of communicating important feelings and emotions that he or she may not yet have the ability to put into words. Located in the historic renovation of the former Malvern School in Shaker Heights, Hanna Perkins includes the Hanna Perkins School, continuing education and training, the Hadden Clinic for Children & Families, The Reinberger Parent Child Resource Center, and child and adolescent psychoanalytic training.  Thank you to Hanna Perkins Center for donating the use of Furman Hall!
