Online PR News – 11-December-2009 – – Blue Star Design and Renaissance Painting are teaming up once again and will be "driving thru" Northeast Ohio to pick donations for their Bi-Annual â€śDrive Thruâ€ť Benefit for the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland on Friday, December 11th, 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.
John Briggs, Vice President of Blue Star Design, and Greg Shelt, owner of Renaissance Painting, will â€śdrive thruâ€ť Cleveland neighborhoods collecting donated food and supplies requested by the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland and deliver them to the House at the end of the day. Blue Star Blue Star will also donate $5 per pick up & deliver all goods directly to the House at the end of the day of pickups.
According to Greg Shelt, the Ronald McDonald House has a special place in his heart, â€śIn the early 90s, my family utilized the generosity and caring atmosphere of the Toledo Ronald McDonald House while my brother was undergoing... treatment for cancer. The Ronald McDonald House provided my family a caring environment and a low cost place to stay near the hospital during this time.â€ť
The idea for the Drive Thru was born over dinner with the friends. â€śWe had this idea to give back to our community and the Ronald McDonald House without knowing about Gregâ€™s personal situation,â€ś explains John Briggs. The friends committed to the idea and turned it into a bi-annual benefit.
The March Drive Thru raised $165 and room full of food and goods. Check out what is on the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland Wish List for items in need: http://www.clevelandrmh.org/support/wishlist.php
